October Meeting

The Oct. meeting will be held on the 1st. At this meeting the main topic will be what direction the club would like to go with the Ohio shows in Aug. We would like for as many members  to be present as possible, so that we get many views. If you are an exhibitor at our Aug shows and have some topics you would like the club to look at , call Jeff at 330-947-2920 and he will present them to the club.As we all know that things in the show world are not the best due to the economy, keep in mind that it  is still the best interest of the club to put on a show that the exhibitors need.

We could still use a few extra people to help, if interested call Paul Hurd at 330-876-3376  .Most of these jobs , you would only be needed for short periods of time.
