September Meet-Up & Events

Message From the Chair
This September is National Preparedness Month. I hope you can attend our meet-up on September 11, at the Green Turtle, and learn more about preparing and planning for emergencies. As the summer is coming to an end and the weather will start to get cooler, we have a number of outdoor events coming up that I hope you will participate in.

Also we need a new AFAC recurring group lead. Ideally volunteering would continue once every 6 weeks. If you are interested in leading this event, please send me an e-mail. I'd like to thank Marjorie Censer for doing a fantastic job leading this recurring event for the last 3 years!
