1st May 2015 Newsletter


The May Business/Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday evening May 5th at 7 PM. We will meet in our usual meeting room at the Scotia Methodist Church.

Registration would begin at 9 AM followed by a safety talk and tutorial and at 10 AM we would begin moving through the various stations.
