The State Convention will be held this year. The information from their meeting will be on AREA03.org soon. If you want to help, contact Adrian at or barraza1515@yahoo.com. SRI needs donations from clubs and individuals. Summer Round Up was canceled but our lawyer was able to bet our deposit back from the hotel. SRI is asking if people can make a $30 donation to them, which would have been the registration fee for the Round Up. This will help SRI. There will be a Golf Tournament on August 9th for SRI. More info to follow. The meeting documents are on the website: https://aaphx.org/groups/
