A call for officers!


We still do not have anyone for the offices of VP and Pres for 2015.  Without filling these offices, the club will have to take a hiatus and then try to restart sometime in the future.  If you have some time available, please consider filling one of these positions.  There are plenty of folks who have filled these positions in the past that can advise and assist, they just do not have the time to do it all themselves over and over again.  Do not let “I don’t know what to do” be a limiting factor.  Doing nothing may equate to the disappearance of the club! :(
