Greetings Members! Is it spring yet?! We will kick off our new year of programs with a wonderful speaker from Guardian Ad Litem, Tamara Todd. Tamara is a volunteer with Guardian Ad Litem and will tell us all about this worthwhile organization. Look below for meeting location details.

Looking forward to seeing you there! – JoAnn Hall

OUR NEXT MEETING: Please note that we will meet slightly earlier than usual – 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. We will meet at Brewed Awakenings at 1000 New Bridge St., Jacksonville. Even though the address is New Bridge Street, the building faces Johnson Blvd./Hwy 24 and is across from the license plate office. Coming from Morehead City/Swansboro, it will be on the left side of the street. Right after you pass it, there will be a chance to make a left hand U-turn to get there. Brewed Awakenings serves a lovely assortment of sandwiches, sweets, teas, coffees, fruit smoothies and Italian sodas. You may order whatever you like individually.
