with the members about major changes to Fitzgerald's that

meeting areas in the back portion of the building will be
remodeled into a Mongolian grill. A discussion by the

locations. Please bring your suggestions for future 
meeting locations to the January meeting or send them to 
N9LB for further research by club officers.
