The month of April began with some fairly mild weather but then the Artic blast from up north descended with heavy rains and strong winds just as our April schedule was set to begin. It was a busy month with many events. Those who were 

able to participate really enjoyed themselves. May promises to be even busier. Check the events schedule to see if you can participate.  Meeting Reminder: May 9th, our guest speaker will be Bill Weber. Come out and show Bill our Shenandoah Valley Hospitality.
