Message from President

It is hard to believe that the year is passing by so quickly! With our Fall Contest just around the corner, I would like to remind you that the timing, rules and regulations are completely up to date on our website. We also have to consider that the club will need to have a new President beginning in January. If you have been considering volunteering for this position, please contact me or one of the Board Members as soon as possible.

I wish you all the best of luck as you prepare to show your work.

Karen Geser
Club President
