1/12/16 Region Meeting Cancelled

I have been recently updated on the weather and feel that it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel our Region meeting that was scheduled to take place this evening at Brann’s restaurant on Division Street in Grand Rapids, MI.  Unless I hear shouting from PR’s and our staff, I do not feel that it is necessary to reschedule this meeting and we can just plan on meeting as scheduled on March 1st.

Thank you all for all that you do for our Region.
