Change in meeting dates

The December meeting scheduled for Thursday the 8th will be changed to Wednesday the 7th due to a scheduling conflict at the Holliston Historical Society.
The January meeting scheduled for Thursday the 12th will be changed to Wednesday the 11th due to a conflict with the “CABIN FEVER EXPO 2012″.  A lot of the members travel to this Expo and leave on Thursday and there was a request at the November meeting to change the date because the January meeting is when the vote for new officers takes place and they want to be here for the voting.

Both will be at the Holliston Historical Society, and both meetings will be on Wednesdays instead of the usual Thursdays.
