We meet monthly, except in the summer, to get together.

We usually meet at the Savannah Center in the Rhett Butler room on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm to 8:50 pm. Off for the summer.


At our May picnic, the membership passed a resolution to donate to the USO.   Since there were only 16 members attending, we want the whole membership to be aware of this resolution.  Please send an e-mail and post the following on our website and so members can check out the organization:

Members at the May Yooper picnic enjoyed great weather and a meal which included pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, water, pop and LOTS of desserts.  At the meeting, members voted to donate $700 to the USO for our wounded warriors and their families.  All members interested in learning more about the organization can access their website:  WWW.USO.org.  

The next meeting is scheduled for October 14 at the Savannah Center, Rhett Butler Room.  We hope to see you there.
