Your suggestions are important to us.  Please call or text Berta Wagstaff at 710-4448 or email her at vets4vets@aol.com no later than Saturday, November 9, 2019.
The list of suggestions will be voted on at the Holiday event.
Always looking for members who are young at heart, enjoy having a good time, and would like to assist in recruiting new members.  Please let Berta Wagstaff know of your desire to be part of the social committee.  We will be meeting in January to plan for the 6 social events in 2020.
