We meet at 11:30AM on the 3rd Sunday of each month, except 2nd Sunday June and December.
Each Meeting consists of a business meeting, followed by a "show and tell" with members showing off their latest finds, or a talk is given on some aspect of collecting or restoration. Some meetings include a small auction of donated items.
