Hi MSCC leaders & parents!

This is a reminder that we're planning to get together at Alpine Lanes next Wednesday the 29th, 6pm until ??

There is no formal agenda per se, but we would like to discuss what went well this year and where we see need for improvement next year.  We'll also discuss some planning for summer (e.g. Jammin' on JVille booth) and start of next school year.

As with any club run 100% by volunteers, the more parental involvement we have, the stronger our club will be!

Please drop me a line if you can make it ( so that I can get a headcount and pull together a group of tables if needed ahead of time.  Everyone can order appetizers or drinks on their own, but I'll buy the first round, as a little incentive for those 'on the fence'  :)

Hope to see you then!
