HOTOS MEETING DATE CHANGES November 27, 2018 & January 8, 2019
Our December 4 meeting has been moved to November 27 due to Zilker's closure for club meetings in December. This is somewhat due to the trail of lights activity. This means our Member Dinner Meetingwill take place on Tuesday November 27 at 7p at Zilker. Pat Pingleton is heading up the food preparations and has sent out an e-mail to members to signup for various food items. This is our last meeting of 2018. Please plan to attend!
Also, since the first Tuesday in January is New Years Day, we are moving our January meeting one week to meet on January 8, 2019. Please make a note of these new dates before the busy holidays season is upon us - lest we forget!
