Missoula Iris Society Newsletter - January 2009

Members:

 

Happy New Year all!! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Here is the January 2009 newsletter. The new year is upon us and our club activities will be starting again. This meeting will be for the election and installation of new officers for the club and the acceptance and ratification of the new budget.

Our annual Christmas Party at Billie’s was another hit as usual. The food was wonderful and a lot of it to go around as well. The gift exchange was much calmer this year than in some of the prior years. Lots of members were involved and everyone seemed to get what they wanted in the end.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all again and getting back on schedule for the new year.
