Havenholde Business Meeting:
The Havenholde business meeting is NO LONGER being held on the 3rd. Thursday of the month.  It has been changed to the fourth Wednesday of each month.  There is also a new location. 

27 May 2015, Wednesday:  The Havenholde Business meeting will start at 7:00 p.m. sharp at the Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant located at 1805 West First Street, Springfield, Ohio 45504.  First Street is off of Bechtle Ave. 

The location has plenty of parking which is always a plus.

The business meeting will be held in one of the two meeting / party rooms.

If anyone plans on eating they should arrive at 6 p.m. because the meeting starts at 7 p.m. sharp.  Attendees do NOT have to order food to attend the meeting.

The Group Seneschal hopes that, as many people as possible will attend in garb.  The group is trying to build our membership and by wearing garb it increases the visibility of the group and increases the chance of people in the restaurant asking questions about who we are and what we do.  You do NOT have to wear garb to attend.
