The first business meeting of the season is on Wednesday, September 11 at 6pm.  It is our annual Pot Luck Dinner at St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Old Lyme on Old Shore Road (Rte. 156). Members are asked to bring either an appetizer, entree or dessert to share.  Beverages will be provided.

For members who have not renewed their membership this is your opportunity to do so.  The membership committee  will have a table set up with renewal forms to fill out.  So please bring your check book or cash and take this opportunity to renew before the directories go to print.

This meeting is always fun and informative.  It is a time to renew old friendships and make new ones as well as a time to find out what activities and speakers we have planned for this year.
