Sept 8 & 9th Stepping Out of the Boat kick-off weekend is being postponed for a later date.
With the possibility of Hurricane Irma, and all it may do, we have decided to postpone the kick-off event planned for this weekend and reschedule for a future date to be determined.
Thank you for your understanding, as we look ahead at the upcoming weekend and desire safe travels for our guest speaker and members.
