Recent & Upcoming Events
May Program Meeting
As usual our May meeting is all about Elections. We are looking forward to meeting at our usual location near Rotkreuzplatz on May 24th (not the 3rd Wednesday). Besides conducting elections, we will be hearing from our adopted charity IMMA. Other than that we have planned lots of time for you to socialize, because we love getting together and chatting with one another!
See you there!
