                                          May meeting
This month we have had to change our scheduling. We are sorry that Pete Beeble is unable to do the workshop.  We will however have the fantastic Joe Barney to take over the reins that night. And, if I know Joe; we will have a great time! Joe is very knowledgeable on a number of levels of entertainment.  Please join us for the fun! Just google "Joe Barney clown".  You'll see!  
See ya'll there!
