As we do every month, we’ll gather for a social mingle at 6PM upstairs at Ri Ra Irish Restaurant and Pub in Evansville, and the formal presentation will get underway at 6:30, wrapping up by 8PM. After that, some of us will move downstairs to enjoy company, and perhaps a meal. There is also table service during the meeting, so you don’t have to wait if it’s been a long stretch since lunchtime.
