A scheduling conflict with Sunset Presbyterian Church caused OTVARC to reschedule its August and September meetings to the fourth Thursdays of those months. We are back to our normal schedule of meeting on the third Thursday of the month in October. Our next meeting will take place on October 17th. Hope to see everyone there.
