July 13 weather

 We made it through the business meeting and 1 round with 2 winners of Bingo before the lightning got a little close and we headed for our cars.  Thanks to all who braved the now-cast (not forecast) weather report. We did miss the Show and Tell portion of our meeting so bring your projects to QBs of save it for August.  

We decided that we should have a weather policy other than "if State College Schools are closed, we cancel", because that wouldn't have done us any good.  The presidents and perhaps other involved members will confer through out the afternoon and put a message on the website by 5:00pm if the evening meeting is to be cancelled.  We'll figure out the daytime policy later.  If someone waants to volunteer to build a telephone or text tree, please speak up.

Binders are available for pick up for Karen P.

 Bobbie Muscarella announced that QBs will start meeting on Tuesdays at the State College Evangelical Free Church, 1243 Blue Course Drive. I will plan to be there for the next 2 Tuesdays (6/29) from 10:00 - 12:00 and (7/6) from 9:30-11:15 if you would like to pick up your binder.

For those of you who haven’t paid, please bring a $30 check or cash.

If neither of those pickup opportunities work for you, let me know when you will be shopping along North Atherton, like at Walmart, Target, Giant, Weis, Trader Joe’s, or Wegman’s.

I live close by and I can plan to meet you in a parking lot or you can come by my house in Overlook Heights.

Also, I will bring any remaining binders to the next CPQG meeting at Orchard Park on Tuesday, July 13.

.,Questions or comments, or to set up a time for pickup, please email Karen,
