MEETING CANCELLED

 

The January UCCTU meeting was cancelled Tuesday morning due to the impending winter storm.  An e-mail was sent out, as well as a notice posted on Facebook.  I hope that all of you who were planning on attending received notice in time and were not inconvenienced.  Ron has promised to schedule Andrew Brown to speak to us later in the year.  

 

Saturday, April 12 Kevin McGrath will rally us to clean up Jones Bridge as part of "Sweep the Hooch".  The weekend of April 26 & 27 Ron Cheslock will have a Spring Fishing Trip for us.  Saturday, May 3 Jim Harvey will be holding the Rizzio Clinic.  And we have a chance to cool our feet in the streams of north Georgia with "Back-the-Brookie"  work days on Saturdays, June 21 and July 12.

 

Also this spring, UCCTU members have a unique opportunity to learn more about our organization when the Southeastern Regional TU meeting comes to the Dillard House in Clayton on Saturday March 29.  I will be looking for a big turnout of our Chapter leaders and aspirants.  Please contact me if you are interested in attending the seminars/workshops and/or the BBQ.

Sincerely,
Brad
