Hi Everyone,
It's a beautiful time of year outdoors: autumn
foliage is at its peak, and the temperature is cool
--so dress accordingly for what should be good
If you are traveling through woods, remember
it’s hunting season, and wear a fluorescent hat.
Our new meeting hall at the Knights of
Columbus seems to working out very well, and
there’s plenty of room for newcomers.
