"I will be bringing 15 items to our SVCB meeting that will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2023. These items have been donated by various members to help our chapter. They would make lovely gifts for some lucky people."


We'll have elections for 2024 officers and directors, and you can nominate people from the floor. The slate of candidates is:
