We’ve been able to keep our last ‘Thursday of the Month” for November, avoiding Thanksgiving, and also in December, avoided being bumped by either Christmas or New Years Day.
We will still probably move to Friedman Branch or Downtown again for Feb and March 2018, those locations have worked out pretty well for us these last couple years.
Be aware that plans are in the works to renovate Maxwell Branch, so it may be a few more months than just those 2 months in 2018 that we will need to meet elsewhere.
Don’t worry, we will provide plenty of prior notification and post it on the blog and the Facebook page.
