Meeting Update

We will meet tonight. There is currently a tornado watch for our area but it is for a wide area and we will be keeping a close eye on the weather. If anyone is not comfortable coming out, feel free to stay home.

Also, it is supposed to be a Class A uniform night, but due to the weather we will be in Class B’s.
