Monthly Meeting Information

This page includes up-to-date meeting information and a list of meeting hostesses.

****  Due to several issues, we will NOT be meeting at Sweetheart Winery on April 23.  But we have a wonderful alternative.  We will be meeting at the Lincoln Gallery at 6:30.  The Gallery is located one half block south of the Loveland Museum next to a parking lot….429 N. Lincoln.  Amy Blackwell, our state president, will be our speaker.  ********

 Our sympathy goes out to Marj Swett whose sister, Sharon Haman, died yesterday, April 16.  Several of us knew Sharon when she was in our Book Club before she became ill.  A service has not yet been scheduled.
