Next Meeting: Monday, Dec. 12

7-9 p.m.

Note: This is the second Monday of the month, not the first.


For December's meeting just a reminder that we will be collecting for the Veteran's Food Bank and that our talk will be about using cookbooks as genealogical sources. To keep with the theme we thought it would be nice if we could bring some goodies, perhaps based on our mothers' and fathers' favourite recipes (and it's ok if your mom was like me and bought all the goodies she sent to school for the bake sale).
