    Women’s Breakfast THIS Saturday January 28 at 9:30 a.m. — Breakfast and program by Susan Frickey. — Program subject: "Preparedness". We all know what condition we might be in during an emergency after this "Snowpacolypse January" so it is appropriate to know more of Susan's personal knowledge and experience to give us guidance for "preparedness" in the face of emergencies. Whether faced by genuine disasters or having no power for a few days, it often falls to the homemaker to ease the family stress. We were treated to taste of what Susan does at our November meeting and asked her to expand on the subject for us. While she is providing breakfast, she is being helped by Donnette. Please consider a donate $5 to help her defray the cost.
