September’s Meeting


Our fall program series kicks off on September 27! Join us as Bob and Sue Lee share their tales of Wash Day. They will show their collection of antique laundry items as well. Come reminisce with us.

Our meetings are held at St. John’s UCC, 161 North Main Street, Red Lion and they begin at 7:00. There is a parking lot behind the church and the door to our meeting room is right there. No steps.

March Meeting Canceled

Red Lion schools are closed for tomorrow, March 22. It is our policy to cancel meetings when the school cancels. Therefore, we won’t have a meeting this month. We’ll reschedule our speaker for the Fall. Our next meeting will be our annual Spring Banquet. Reservation forms and details are in the last newsletter.
