Quonset Hut Remodel Project
We are happy to announce that the project is done! After so many years of some embarrassment, we can now be very proud of our updated meeting hall which included work on the first floor of the A Dome. Our thanks to the many members who participated, but especially Tamas Kriska, Agnes Kessler, and Jeff Kraehnke. See details here.
