We typically meet on the 4th Monday of the month alternating between the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth (January, March, May, July, September, November) and BankW Holdings in Bedford (February, April, June, August, October). An email will be sent out announcing the meeting. Please RSVP to attend so we can plan for appetizers in Portsmouth and Pizza in Bedford.
