We will not be meeting at Wausau Country club due to some club event. Pastor Ray has secured his church hall for the meeting. He will have the doors open @ 6:30 and asks that people park in the back parking lot. Breakfast will be catered in by CJ’s. The program focus will be the Music and Martinis fundraiser. Jim Warsaw will be talking about donations and sponsorships and Jan Klosinski will be addressing the club regarding literacy.
- For September 17, Tammy Szekeress and Maggie Gordon will be giving an overview of the Children’s Museum of Marathon County.
It is asked that members get their speaker information to Sheryl Hemp as soon as possible.
