For those who can join us next Thursday January 30th at 11am for lunch, we will be meeting at Hartville Kitchen located at 1015 Edison Street, Hartville, Ohio 44632. The reason we are meeting Tuesday for lunch is that the Hartville Kitchen is closed on Wednesday. This is the only time we meet on Thursday and not Wednesday is when we go to the Hartville Kitchen.
WELCOME TO 2020 all chapter members. I want to welcome everyone to our meeting on Tuesday FEBRUARY 4 at Ellet Community Center (2449 Wedgewood Drive) starting at 6:30 pm.
REMINDER ! The chapter will be collecting food items or other items as noted in the Newsletter for Akron Ronald McDonald home, bring donation to the meeting.
I will be sending out the February meeting agenda later this week.
At one of our meetings I mention a three day bus trip to Washington D.C. in October 2020, at cost of $350.00. About 14 of you were interested in this trip, I need you to contact me this week by Thursday evening and let me know if you are still interested as the date has been changed to April 24-26. There is also one other change which I will explain when we talk.
Either reply to this email or call me at 330-844-3584.
I do need to confirm the approximate head count late this week for seating.
