PRIME TIME GUYS
At our next meeting, Monday, May 21, we will have a delicious meal served from the Abundant Harvest Food Truck. Donations will be accepted for this lunch.

As usual, plan to arrive at 11:00 a.m. for fellowship with program and lunch to follow. This would be a good time to invite a guest(s). Please consider inviting a friend or neighbor. Everyone is welcome!
