The May and June Meeting Have been Canceled

We are suspending our monthly meetings for the duration of restrictions on public meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This mimics what APS has done, closing schools for the rest of the academic year. We will have a summer break, just like APS, and we won't meet again until September. 


Thank you for your patience and support! You are our most important asset, so please stay safe.
