Club Demonstration:    


There was no demonstration at this meeting as it was our annual Christmas party.  We are always looking for members to do demonstrations or give us some ideas for our programs.  If you would like to do a demo for us, have any new ideas, or are just interested in learning something specific, mention it to one of the Vice President’s committee members.  I am sure that they will do their best to produce results.  The committee members are:  Jim Cunning, Paul Wilhelm, and Brian Young.
