Notes from the MAMA President:

With kids out of school, family gatherings and vacations, cookouts, the upcoming Juneteenth holiday, and Father's day all falling within a week of each other attendance at the June meeting was light. But one thing certainly was not light, and that was the strength of the club's feeling that we miss seeing our buddy Ron Hamilton at the meetings and that we all cannot wait until he can come back and rejoin us for some plastic slinging and fellowship. Hurry back, Ron!

Please continue to keep the people of the Ukraine in your thoughts and prayers as Russia's senseless war on them drags on.
