    Guild Monthly Lunch gathering Comes to Zoom

    In an effort to allow members to keep the comradery of our monthly lunch meetings going, we will be hosting a Zoom get together at 11:30 AM on the first Monday of the month.

    Since it's going to be difficult to eat lunch together, we thought we could go around the gathered group and briefly discuss what we may or may not have been doing in your shop. If you have any pictures of items you'd like to share, have them available on your PC or Phone (depending on what you're connecting to the meeting with), and we'll be able to share your screen.

    For Security reasons we do not publish the meeting information on the website.  We will send out the invite by email next Sunday, May 3rd.
