January 2014

Although the weather didn’t cooperate with our first attempt at our annual kick-off dinner at Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA it was just a minor set-back.  We gathered for a delicious meal and good conversation on Friday, January 17th, less our illustrious leader who was unable to attend.  The meeting for January was not held in lieu of this buffet dinner… what a way to have a meeting!  It was great!

 

 

February, 2014

The monthly meeting was held at the clubhouse (Gelinas residence – Stroudsburg, PA)… Our meetings are held the 2nd Friday of each month with a workshop following the day after (unless otherwise stated). This month’s workshop consisted of working on 5’ feather flags, some members’ new ones, and repairing some of the old ones. Repairs were done on fatigued banners, kites, and flags, an ongoing thing.
