with the members about major changes to Fitzgerald's that

meeting areas in the back portion of the building will be

location for future MDXC meetings. We are now looking
for input from the membership as to possible new meeting
locations. Please bring your suggestions for future
meeting locations to the January meeting or send them to
N9LB for further research by club officers.
