A short business meeting will precede this evening of merriment. The meeting will include the annual Treasurer's report, an announcement of the 2020 schedule of events, and election of officers. All members are encouraged to attend. During the business meeting, candidates for the four organizational positions are nominated and voted upon. These positions are: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Currently, the positions are held by Ken Haapala, Russ Davis, Walt Rachele, and Claire Cuccio, respectively. If you wish to nominate someone else for a position, please contact Dave Barber (, who is chair of the Nomination Committee. All attending are requested to bring a gift ($10 - $20) for a child, appropriately wrapped, with the suggested age and sex of the child indicated on the package. These will be distributed to the less fortunate by Christ Church in Alexandria and by an appropriate organization in Anacostia (SE Washington).
