Our next meeting will be on Saturday, April 18 at the Looking Glass Restaurant at 329 Warfield Blvd. Dutch treat breakfast will be at 9:30 am, with the business meeting to start at 10:00. Breakfast is buffet style, so please send Cathy Kolb a text or email (931-801-6954 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know if you plan on eating ASAP. We need to let the restaurant know how much food to prepare and that is very difficult if you do not RSVP. Please help support this Republican-owned business by purchasing breakfast especially since they are giving us a DEAL on the room. Remember, friends and family are always welcome
