Christmas all over again! Or never was! December 7, 2017 was a nasty night when no man or dog or MFN members should be on the road so MFN cancelled its Christmas meeting. Guest speaker Eleanor Kee Wellman was snow bound, so it seems pretty safe to invite her to be our guest speaker at the June meeting for her Magical Butterfly program. The auction, which may have included Christmas goodies, will take place with fresh goodies! Besides the auction items, refreshments are enjoyed at this meeting and will be gladly accepted. The auction is a fundraiser for MFN so your generosity in purchasing tickets and/or donating interesting items for the draws will be welcome.
