When parking at the fire station – please be aware that the wire fence enclosed area is only for firefighters–do not park in that area. If the lot is full, after 6:00 PM you can park in the lot of the medical office building just to the south of the fire station.

Minutes from our July 1st meeting will be e-mailed with the meeting reminders. To expedite our Business Meeting, minutes are not read, although members will be asked for any additions/corrections–and for approval of the minutes as written. Our business meeting will begin at 7 PM, followed by the presentation of our beading project.
