Our September 5, 2009 meeting provided a nice turnout for a holiday weekend. The group welcomed two new members this evening, over twenty were in attendance. As always, food and refreshments were served with a few additional treats provided by the members. An open forum discussion group was held after the general meeting and announcements for interested members. The remaining members relaxed and socialized in the main conference facility.
