September, 2019 Regular quarterly meeting. At our last quarterly meeting, September 16, we tried something new…a full program accompanied with coffee and dessert rather than our usual meal.  We had a large turnout with 84 members and guests. Club member and former Club President, Phyllis Ericson, regaled us with a great presentation on DNA, being Scandinavian, and tracing your genes and heritage.  How exciting it was to learn about the genetic of ourselves and our ancestors.  Thank you, Phyllis!  It was a special evening. We need to do more things like this.
