The October meeting is one of the busiest! Some of the agenda items:

You can also look forward to a great presentation by representatives of the Philbrook Museum. They will talk about their 75th Anniversary and other opportunities and events at Philbrook. This is a good time for them because they do have a lot going on right now and they are looking forward to sharing this with us.
