End of Year Board Meeting October 28th. Please join us for the final AREC Board Meeting of 2009.

We are also looking for people to serve on the various committees which help with New Membership, Social Activities, Fundraising and Fun Runs.
There is no better time to pitch ideas which can make AREC a better club. No reasonable suggestion will be unheard. The meeting will start at approximately 7:45 in the back room at Buster's (and you can still get your food and beer).
If you can't attend the meeting, but have a suggestion, please e-mail Tam Premsrirath or Emmett Rahl at their e-mail addresses. Thanks.
