2018 Fall Meeting

The Fall Conference is October 20th and is hosted by Jack Ridl in Douglas on “the Big Lake” as we call it over here. You may have your own Big Lake.  Coffee and Sweetwater donuts at 9:30. Meeting begins at 10. Business will not be first, so be on time or you will miss something special. We will meet at the Congregational Church, 56 Wall Street.  Lunch will be catered in. We hope to do this for $25 per person. Our guest writer leading a workshop will be Kathleen McGookey. We will also be having a panel on submission. Kathleen has quite the system!! It will be delightful for us all to get together again.
