2014 Officers and Board of Directors
Reminder that our August 16 meeting will be our annual ice cream party and potluck supper and will not be held at the Museum.   Instead, we will meet at Claystone Park on Lake Tobesofkee (6600 Moseley Dixon Rd, Macon, GA) at section C-207.   We will start to gather around 4:00, food around 5:00, and then plenty of time for swimming and playing.   There is a $3 per person fee to enter the park.
