March Meeting

Margie did a great job running our meeting this month. Don't forget to consider volunteering in one of the many positions available to fill for next year. Many hands make light work. Volunteering is very gratifying and fun. What better way to connect with members? 

A request was also made for our knitting members to make "Toe Covers for Casts" and the pattern can be viewed or printed by clicking here.
