Our March annual election meeting, awards ceremony, and potluck luncheon is scheduled for Saturday, March 26, please mark your calendar. We will be announcing the winners of the 2011 writing contest. A period of open discussion and networking between members is a traditional end of year event. The outgoing executive board will place the proposed budget before the membership. The final business is the election of next season’s executive board.
You are also invited to bring guests to our social potluck luncheon. You can either bring a dish to feed 6-10 or pay $5 at the door. If you bring a guest and dish, the guest is free and any additional guests are $5 each. GCWA is providing the morning coffee, tidbits, and the luncheon drinks and service (plates, napkins, plastic ware).
A reminder from the membership chair, please pay your annual $25 dues by the end of March.
