**IMPORTANT CHANGE OF DATE FOR MAY MEETING **
I found out Wednesday that First United Methodist (FUMC) is NOT available for our meeting scheduled for May 2. We tried but were unable to locate another place for the meeting on such short notice so we’ve had to reschedule for May 9th. We’ll still be at FUMC on the 9th at the same time and Jammie will be teaching her class at Fabric Carousel on the 10th. The board meeting will be changed to May 10at 4pm after Jammie’s class. Due to circumstances, we’re also going to need a few volunteers to help with setting up chairs/tables for the meeting. If anyone can come around 5:30 to help us, it would be greatly appreciated!
I am so sorry for the late notice and inconvenience but it couldn’t be helped! I hope that most of you will still be able to attend and hear our own Jammie Ackley’s presentation!
