CLUB “THINK TANK” IS CREATED

President, Bill Wallace, announced at the first Board meeting the creation of a “Think Tank” to stimulate new ideas for Scottish programming.  We are looking for new thoughts and ideas as the board moves forward with its plans for the future.

“Think Tank” membership is open to any member who would like participate, there is no cost (really!); meetings, if necessary, would, at most, be one or two a year (mostly done online).  Interested? Contact Bill at 941-378-0085 or Bill Wallace.
