PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LOCATION OF THE MEETING HAS CHANGED. IT IS AT THE SOUTH LOCATION OF Texas Land & Cattle. Also, this venue has a $250 minimum and requires us to pick a menu selection. We have chosen the least expensive which is the Silver Menu for $18.99. Please arrive early to order.
Please also note that, due to unforseen circumstances, Jerry Patterson will be speaking next month instead of this month.
