My plans are to use the projector at each meeting starting with March. Mansfield is coming
This month is Presidential theme month. Please share anything that is patriotic. Be creative as you look at your treasurers. We need at least 10 members to share. The image is a Cleveland Cycles vintage clock with an American flag from Sears.
