     1:00 PM     Program:   Since this will be Memorial Day Weekend, it would be nice to remember our ancestors/family member who served in the military.  We are asking each one coming to the meeting to do a short 2 to 3 minute presentation on the ancestor, with their name, how related to you, what branch of military, and time period or war, and if they returned home or were injured or died during their service time.  We are asking for just a brief talk so that everyone at the meeting will get a chance to remember their person.  If there is time, we will go around the table again, so if you have a second or third person, come prepared to share their information as well.    
             
Potluck Lunch also comes with hot coffee or tea, all utensils, plates, napkins are furnished. OGS asks for a $5.00 donation to help cover the cost of supplies. If you can't afford this then please let the Treasure know and you can still eat with us. If you decide at the last minute to come but don't have time to make or pick up something then come anyway. If you have a special diet then feel free to bring your own food. We want to see you and if you are new we would like to get to know you.
