We had one club anniversary, David Archbold June 25th, 18 years.

Dr. Robert Schaener was our presenter for the day, he spoke to us about our school system, and how the pandemic has changed delivery of education radically.  The future of public education is being planned right now, with a focus on safety and fiscal responsibility.  Thank you so much for your presentation Bob, great information.
