Chapter e-News, Vol. 53

Welcome to GWAC’s new program year. Please consult the Chapter calendar for upcoming events. We are constantly updating it with new information as it becomes available. Also check out the Groups’ activities as there may be one that piques your interest even though you are not a member of that Group. Many activities are open to all GWAC members.

We have moved the office and I would like to invite all of you to come visit us in our new “digs”. There is plenty of free parking. The office is available for group meetings either board or general. The new office is looking for a gently used wooden bookcase or cabinet. If you have one that you would like to donate, we would accept it gratefully.
