January Membership meeting
January Going Places
Please join the Going Places group on Thursday, January 16, for a trip to El Paso to visit the El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center, lunch at a yet-to-be-determined-but-delicious location, and concluding with a visit to the traditional Bowie Bakery. The Museum is admission free with donations requested. A small group did a scouting trip to the Museum and were duly impressed. It is very well done. You may sign up at the December Luncheon, at the January meeting or by contacting Luann Metzgar.
