We are quickly approaching a very important date for the Society – the SCGS Annual Meeting, which will be held on Saturday, December 12. All members are strongly encouraged to attend this important meeting of the Society.

At the Annual Meeting:

1. Election of Board members will be announced. Have you cast your ballot yet? If not, you have until Wednesday, December 9 to do so. Mail your ballot or drop it off at the SCGS Library

2. Society leaders will look back at the successes of 2009 and look forward to the goals set for 2010.

3. Jamboree plans will be announced.

4. The annual Silent Auction will be held. It’s not too late to donate your items – just bring them to the Library by Thursday, December 10. Be sure to mark the items with the estimated value so that Jim and Pat Fryman can have a great sale. When you’re shopping, remember this is a fundraising activity for SCGS and open your pocketbooks.

5. We’ll give away a full registration to Jamboree.

6. Think about bringing a gift for the Society. How about bringing a ream or two of copy paper, office supplies, cleaning supplies, paper towels, etc.

7. Oh, and one more thing. We’ll have our usual FABULOUS potluck meal.

We open the food lines at 11:30 a.m. and begin the business meeting at 12:45 p.m. Come early to shop at the silent auction and to socialize with the other SCGS members.

The Library will be closed for research on Saturday, December 12 and there will be no Lunch & Learn session on that day.
