We have a lot planned for this meeting.

  • Election of officers for 2017-18
  • Member ginza prior to the meeting
  • Bento Box program by Margy Metzler
For the election

Our board is only as effective as our members are willing to help.  Please contact any member of the incoming slate of officers or the nominating committee and offer to serve on a committee.

Member ginza instructions:
  • Please reserve a full or half 6 foot table in advance by contacting Margy Metzler.
  • Bring your items to sell
  • If you have items that you wish to donate or perhaps sell to the ginza rather than sell yourself, contact Nancy Peterson.
