Guest Speakers

We had a great speaker in Dr. Scott and a great turn out. I am working on lining up another speaker thanks to Betsy Johnson.  If you know of someone who would be a good speaker for our group, please let me know. We had such a good turn out for Dr. Scott and I know sometimes we just need a little encouragement and motivation.

Our next meeting is September 13th! I hope to see you there.
