June 2nd Meeting in Hudsonville!
Every year in June, our meeting and the IRA Potluck Dinner occur on the same night. It’s a great event and since a lot of our members enjoy going to the dinner, we join them. The potluck starts at 6:30pm.
This means that this month’s meeting location will be different!
Our meeting this month will be at the Hudsonville Fairgrounds, 5235 Park Ave, Hudsonville, MI 49426
The meeting will be after the potluck. Listen for an announcement or look for the herd of hams moving into the next room.
Unfortunately we won’t be able to have people join via zoom for this one since we will be at a different location.
Hope to see you there!
