Annual Picnic and Annual Meeting – May 22 at noon

Our annual picnic and annual meeting will take place on Sunday, May 22. We are due to hold the event in eastern Iowa this year, and I may have taken advantage of that by selecting a venue only minutes from my home. We’ve booked the Perry Hummel Shelter at Vinton’s Riverside Park, just south of the Cedar River and across North 9th Avenue from the Virginia Gay Hospital. It’s a somewhat larger facility with plenty of room if there’s still a desire for some social distancing.

If you are able to attend, please bring a side dish and/or a dessert to share—we’ll provide the rest. Tentative plans are for the meal to begin at noon, with the annual meeting afterwards. Our Facebook page and web site will have additional details as the event approaches.

In advance of the membership meeting, we will be holding elections for our chapter officers and board members, with the newly elected officials installed at the meeting.In lieu of other nominations, it appears our current slate of officers and board members will be running for election unopposed. If you would like to serve as a chapter officer or board member, or even just help out at one of this year’s events, please contact me at

The election should commence at the beginning of May, with balloting being primarily via electronic means using Further directions will be provided at that time.
