Great Lakes Chapter April 28-29th, 2012 Final Meeting Agenda
« on: January 03, 2012, 01:31:46 PM »
Great Lakes Chapter Meeting-Agenda has been set for Saturday and Sunday, April 28th & 29th, 2012 at the Livonia Senior Center, Livonia, Michigan. This meeting will be free to all SAPFM dues paying members. There will be a charge of $5 per person. This will cover Saturday and Sunday's pop, coffee, pastries, water, rental fee and snacks.
We will be having lunch at a restaurant (Sam's Place) next to the Senior Center.
I'm looking forward to this meeting. It is always a pleasure to meet everyone and share our knowledge.
If members would like to bring complete pieces for other members to see that would be appreciated. We will make time available so they can tell members about the piece they brought to the meeting.
 Thanks, Ed

Looking forward to it Ed. I'll try to keep the presentation brief, I hate to get between a hungry crowd and their dinner!
