Membership Meeting Update

We had a very nice membership meeting in late February. About 20+ folks came in despite some issues with getting the word out. Chad Yoshinaga gave a great talk and everyone enjoyed the film, "In the Wake of Giants."

Speaking of, Lou Douros, Filmmaker  for the film has begun selling DVD's of the program. Please support their efforts by checking in at their website and getting a copy. See:  www.wakeofgiants.com.
