How great it will be to see all members join us for our first official meeting for 2022

  


 

We need your plastic Bread Tags for Wheelchairs

We are collecting plastic Bread Tags that will raise money for 'Wheelchairs for Kids'. Can you help? Please ask your friends to save them for you as well. And bring them to our meeting and give them to Tania or Michele.
