Branch Installation/Meeting

The June general meeting and Installation of new officers is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 24 at 11:00. We should try to get there by 1030 so we can get prepared for the meeting, etc.
The meeting will be held at the Welcome Valley Senior Center, 5103 Mosquito Lake Road, Deming, WA. phone (360) 592 5403 cell phone coverage is questionable in the area.
Directions to the center: From Bellingham and areas to the west, pick up Mount Baker Hwy, 542, proceed east through two roundabouts,  #1- 542 & Smith Road; #2- 542 at Nugent's Corner.  Continue east through Deming, past the turn for Hwy 9, still headed east.   Prior to the 17 mile marker on 542, you will see the sign for the Mosquito Lake Road and the Welcome Grocery, where you turn right and proceed for 2.4 miles. The center is an old red school house with white trim and it will be on the right side of the road. 
If coming from the south you can either pick up Mosquito Lake Road just after crossing the south fork of the Nooksack river at Acme on Hwy 9 or go all the way to Hwy 542, the Mount Baker Hwy, the recommended route , then turn right and proceed to the Mosquito Lake Road, as above.
From most Whatcom and Skagit  locations travel time will be between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

We have a number of business items to handle during the meeting.  The Installation of officers will follow under New Business. Finally, we will have a delicious lunch and social activities. Menu is fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, baked beans, coleslaw, dinner rolls, cake & dessert, coffee and punch . At the last meeting we tried to get a count of who would attend so we could effectively plan the food supply, so if things have changed or you were not at the meeting, please let me know if you will attend and how many guests will be coming with you.   Thanks to all and hope to see you there.
