Our board members for 2020 - 2022 are:   President – Gail Porter Vice President – Clayton Waldron Secretary – William Jackson Treasurer – William Jackson Chaplain – Doug Coles   William would certainly appreciate someone stepping up for Secretary, as he is already the Treasurer and could use some help.   Meetings will continue on even months at Carr’s restaurant.
