Fall Meetings Cancelled! Next Meeting in January (maybe…)!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and abundance of caution, we decided to cancel all the fall meetings and possibly start up again in January, 2021.


The website is transitioning to a new hosting company. If you are reading this, you are viewing the old site. If possible, the new site will be linked here when it is up. If not, watch for email and Facebook announcements.

Your email may have stopped working already. I can set you up with a new email from the new host as soon as the transition is complete. -John Osterhout (webmaster)
