Caught up with posts for the programs for the year!

Caught up for 2018

I have caught up with posts for each of the programs for the year- and am very much looking forward to C.D. Peterson's talk on the home front- specifically his home front farm on June 27th, 2018.  The paper copies of the newsletter went out today - and I hope to get the online copy out today or tomorrow! Here are some various pictures from the group:
