The wandering Gypsys have a new home.

We will be meeting at the Viles Arboretum at 153 Hospital street for the 2017-2018 season. It was a very hard choice between the Arboretum and the Harlow Gallery.  The Site Committee and I came to the conclusion that there was more room at the Arboretum and the parking situation was better there as well.

I would like to thank the Site Committee for their work on researching this and presenting the facts and opinions of each site to help come to a final decision. Cecil and Steve were able to do the legwork in negotiating with the different potential sites and presenting their findings for review.  Cecil, Steve, Enigmah, and I came to the same conclusion that the Arboretum best fit our needs.  The cost would have been $500.00 per year for the Harlow and $540 for the Arboretum.  We felt that the difference in cost was made up by the fact that the room was larger and the parking situation was more stable in favor of the Arboretum.

This means we need to increase membership to help cover the added costs.  So those of you who have not been active in the past years now is the time to step up and rejoin the club and be active in our little community again.  The program committee is actively working on making a very interesting and educational series of programs for this year.

With all of that said I hope to see you Sept. 5th.
