Our General Meetings are open to the public as well as our members and their guests. However, an RSVP must be received in advance. Please see membership for more information.
With the guidance of Gwenn Lloyd, members learned new ways use our talents, using old books in new ways.
Kay McKeen from SCARCE would be so proud of us. She taught us how to find a place for just about everything that would go to the landfill without just a little effort from us.
