March 7 meeting cancelled

We are sorry but the meeting set for March 7 has had to be cancelled due to ongoing repairs at our regular location at the church. Since the room is not available and the other rental spots in town do not have a tv/dvd player for our "movie night" set for this meeting we had to cancel.
Sorry for any inconvenience and hope to see you next month!
