Mark your calendars-- new meeting day and time

Starting October 17, the TGCW meetings will occur on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 10:00 in the morning. We will continue to gather at RC Miller Library. Hopefully this new schedule will make it easier for some of our out-of-town members to attend, and give us more of a chance to work or socialize after the meetings. Please spread the word.
