Membership Game Night: The membership committee did a great job organizing games!
ACTIVITY ONE was led by JoAnn Brown:  Members came to the meeting wearing something (a hat, a tie, a t-shirt, etc.) that represents something about yourself and shared why.
ACTVITY TWO was led by Jo Cooper: “2 Truths and 1 lie” Members came to the meeting prepared to share 2 truths and 1 lie about themselves.  The rest of the members will get to guess which one of your statements is a lie!
