Events and special programs
Regular monthly meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday during the months of February, March, April, May, June, and August. Guest speakers appear at each regular meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. with a Pot Luck Dinner and fellowship time. Most meetings are held at the United Community Bank in Burnsville, intersection of U.S. 19E and Highway 197. All meetings are open to the public and you do not need to be a member of the club to attend.
There are no meetings during November, December and January.
