This week we'll be back to the MIA club and Graham will give us all a lesson on how to get the most out of social media; Rotary and Facebook.
 
Farmers and Makers Market will be held on Saturday, April 6. If you have the time please come along - we'll pass the volunteer sheet out at Thursday's meeting.
 
Also, it's not too early to start thinking about your 'Roaring Twenties" costume for the Art Deco Festival. If you have any ideas on how we might decorate our Prohibition Bar - "Big Al's Garage" please let Monique or me know.
