MAIC of Muskegon will be Sept 14 or 21. We’re looking at the dates of late April and late July or early August to add to the calendar. We are always looking for good venues and feedback on the ones we have. Andy has not yet purchased cones and will buy helmets this week.

Social chair Mary Savage will confirm the July dates for the Summer Party with Johnson Park. We would like to have a party for our 65th anniversary maybe on a Saturday. Sam Rogers, Mary S and Suzy Beauvais will form a committee for
