Monday, June 4: The General Meeting on the 4th is going to be our volunteer appreciation meeting so there won’t be a speaker.  As you all also know, the most interesting family members are those we don’t always get to talk about.  Bring your story of your black sheep and we’ll have a vote on whose story is the most scandalous – you may even win a prize! See you at River Park Church at 7 p.m. For more information contact programs@afhs.ab.ca

Monday, June 11: The Ontario SIG will meet from 10 a.m. to noon at the AFHS Library. This will be the last meeting until the fall. We will have a report of the recent OGS Conference from Lorna. Bring your Burning Questions, and we will try to find answers. For more information contact ontariosig@afhs.ab.ca
