The Club wishes to thank Les Gaskins for his many years of arranging speakers for our members meetings. Les stepped away from his role after the May 2019 members meeting. Mike Garvey, the Club's Treasurer, has informed us he will not be standing for re-election to the post at the end of his current term this coming October; many thanks to Mike for his service to the Club. These and other openings are available to those who want to make things happen. Please drop us a line if you or someone you know can help fill these openings.
