Next Meeting (May)
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 – 7:30 pm. Monthly meeting. Gear up for Fraser South’s annual and justly famous “Beer Bottle Truss Show” where members themselves do the judging. Bring your best rhododendron trusses along with ear muffs to protect yourself from the cacophony of “oohs” and “aahs”. Guests are very welcome!
