Lunch Time
12:00pm - 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 15, 2019
Pat Stubblefield and her volunteers will be taking a well deserved break for the summer, but the Lodge will be open prior to the June Meeting, so why not bring your lunch and arrive early?
The lunch break is a great time to trade family history stories, fellowship with other genealogists, and enjoy a good meal.  You can brown bag it, pick up lunch nearby, or order delivery,
