The next Board meeting will be on Saturday April 5, 2014 and will be held again at the Harbor Restaurant and marina on Pomme De Terre lake. Breakfast buffet will start at 7:30 am and the meeting will start at 9:00am. Please attend the breakfast buffet if possible before the meeting as we will not have to pay a meeting room charge if most pay and eat breakfast. Last year the food was excellent and the meeting went quick.
