Special Note:

Hi Jean,

I don't know if it's possible to send out a brief message to the membership.

 

1. The main street of Waterford is torn up/closed.  There is a very short detour through the backstreets of Waterford going east to Hwy 36.

 

2. Parking: For those who don't mind walking about 60 yds., there is plenty of space back in the orchard past my garage.

    If walking that distance is a problem for anyone, they are welcome to park near the house.

 

Looking forward to a great day.

Tom
