Normally the Ancient Islands Group meets from September to May on the second Thursday of the month, most often at Circle B Bar Reserve. (Consult the latest newsletter or email us to confirm time and place before you come.) We begin with a potluck supper at 6:30 pm. Bring a dish to share and your own drink and utensils. Dress is casual. Meetings start at 7:00 pm and frequently include a presentation by a speaker. All general meetings are open to the public, so feel free to invite a friend. The parking lot is not lighted, so we recommend that you also bring a flashlight.
The December meeting usually includes a holiday party at a member’s home where the results of the annual election of officers are announced. The time and place of the December meeting will be announced in the November/December mailed newsletter.
