    My my how the calendar has gotten away from us so fast. It’s April already and CLAP is right around the corner!

    This will serve as a request for RSVPs to get a head count for attendance and lunch. This is a free event to attend. The only cost is your time to come and share your day with us. Please reply if you are coming.

    Friday April 29th - Set Up at Nancy Foley's 12:00pm - This is always fun, Bill's shop gets its annual cleaning and the conversation is always riveting. That evening at 5:30 is the Pizza Meet & Greet for those in the area or staying in the area.

    3. Item 6 on the agenda, Building a Better Mouse Trap, is meant to be a group discussion on something you have done or created that has assisted in your display creation or execution. We want a sharing of those epiphany moments, or golden ideas. We all have something here for sure. Think about this and come prepared to verbally share, or bring a show and tell……..
