NEW OFFICER CANDIDATES NEEDED for the following positions -President, VP, Webmaster

Our club cannot operate without some help…. just like the little red hen, don’t expect the same people to continue and keep the club momentum going… we need new “blood” to invigorate our group, consequently without your help the club will be HISTORY. Remember that there is plenty of support from past officers so you won’t have to go it alone!!!! Give any officer a call and step up to the task.
