EGS Jan. 7 Meeting Is On

Hi All,

Just a little note to say tomorrows morning meeting is still scheduled. We know the weather may be a factor for some and ask that you use your best judgement regarding your attendance. Safety first! However we have confirmed with our speaker and plan to go ahead with the program.

You may want to check with the library in the morning to be sure it is open because, of couse, if it closes we can't hold the meeting. However, I checked the morning which is suppose to be the coldest of the two days and the library is open today.

I don't know about you, but I've had about enough of the winter already!!
