SCPCA Meeting January 23 10:00-3:00 Riverbanks Botanical Garden

The SCPCA will have a membership meeting January 23, 10:00-3:00 at Riverbanks Botanical Garden.

 

Many thanks to Andy Cabe and Riverbanks for hosting this meeting!

Here’s a link to a doodle poll to RSVP for the Membership Meeting. It would help to have an idea of how many people are coming.
