Dear Neighbors;

We have been advised by Sen. Lynwood Lewis’s office that Senator Lewis will not be able to meet with us tomorrow night during our scheduled GNL Board meeting at the Chrysler Museum (@ 6:30 p.m.) He was to provide a brief summary of the recent State Legislative Session.  We hope to reschedule his visit in the near future.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night despite the loss of our headliner appearance 😉 .

Dave
