2017 FUND RAISING SCHEDULE

Our Fund-Raising schedule for 2017 has been presented by Dick Boxwell, and now is the time to be thinking about these events and signing up to man our tables. You get to meet and chat with some very interesting people. Remember that these functions provide funds for our yearly operating expenses so that we do not need to pay dues to the chapter every year. These are the dates and Walmart locations.   Times 8:00 am - 6:00 pm. And the shifts are for 2 hours each. Sign-up sheets will be passed around at the April Chapter meeting. We hope to see you there. April 21/22, Pleasant Valley Rd.
