History Tidbits

We are continuing to feature “History Tidbits” as we approach our sixty year anniversary in March of 2015. We will be discussing the formation of a 60th Anniversary Committee at our board meeting. John German has agreed to be our master of ceremonies for this event and has a number of the club’s past presidents joining the committee. John has sent out an email asking for volunteers to assist with the selection of the venue and the planning of the anniversary party.
