Our monthly meetings are held the third Monday of the month (Dec is earlier, January is Tuesday), at the Mt Laurel Community Center,
located at 100 Mt Laurel Rd (by police station and across from the library).
Meetings start with refreshments at 11am, then a business meeting. Most months (but not Sep nor Dec) a presentation follows the business meeting.
