October and December are potlucks for the General Membership and their families. OFFA will provide meat and drinks for both potlucks. Please bring a covered dish or two and table service. The potlucks will be held at St. Paul's Reformed Church in America - 6077 German Church Road, Ohio City, OH. This is handicap accessible. Directions are:
Convoy-Heller Road south from 224 (where 49 goes into Convoy) to German Church Road. Turn left. First church on the left side (white church).
New this year, the After Show Critique will also be held at St. Paul's. I am thinking homemade ice cream and other desserts for refreshments at this one. All low calorie and low sugar. We have a new shelter house that is just begging to be used. If anyone has time to help out at the show, please contact me or any of the Directors. We have several positions we need help with. Even if it is for just two or three hours, your help is really appreciated.
Elections will be held at the November meeting. Anyone interested in a position, please let an officer or trustee know of your interest so your name can be put on the ballot.
The December meeting will be our Christmas Party. We will be having our Christmas auction. Please bring items for the auction. It is a lot of fun and brings in some funds for the club
Come join in the fun. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for the show or would like to serve on one of the committees, please let one of the officers or directors know, drop us an email, or come to one of our meetings.
