Light refreshments and Childcare Provided    

We ask all members to attend, particularly so that we will have a quorum for voting purposes. Two meetings a year are required by our Bylaws–a semi-annual and an annual meeting. We will conduct the business of the Society, affirm new committee members, vote to elect new members for our church board, and vote to approve our budget for next year.  We cannot vote upon anything unless we have a quorum.
