Regent Marcene announced that the July meeting will be the annual potluck luncheon on Thursday, however due to the Michigan State officers coming to Iron Mountain to meet with the officers, the luncheon will be changed to Monday, June 30. All are asked to bring a dish to pass.

Members attending should also bring a newspaper wrapped gift to be used as prizes for bingo. There will not be a July meeting.

No one will be attending the June convention at Mackinaw Island, but the reports required were sent in with the convention fee.
