Annual Meeting Location and Date. The Hack Ma Tack had been a great location but is not the best venue because of a lack of technology and audio system. The board discussed the best options and feels the Cheboygan Library is the best choice. Joe Van Antwerp will approach the library about us using the facility. We also discussed dates and times. It was decided that we feel changing the day of the week and time may increase attendance. We decided to try for July 19th late afternoon or early evening and possibly providing an ice cream social.
