Apologies Are In Order

The September meeting of the club was held on Tuesday the 4th at Libby’s Catfish and Diner in Priceville. I was remiss in not posting that information here and updating the post on the club’s Facebook page, and I understand that there were some who arrived at the Morgan County Courthouse (our usual venue) for a meeting that never occurred. I am sorry for causing this confusion and will work hard to prevent it from happening again.

Along that same line, there was an announcement in the Sunday, September 9th edition of the Decatur Daily stating that there is a meeting scheduled at the courthouse this coming Tuesday (the 11th) at 7:30. This is incorrect. Please do NOT go to the courthouse on that day. The next scheduled club meeting is in October at a place to be announced later.

I don’t expect an apology from the Daily for the error.

DARC 2018 Christmas Dinner Meeting

Greetings and Merry Christmas with all of the trimmings!

December has finally come upon us,  and as is our custom, we will forego the normal business meeting and assemble for our annual Christmas dinner at 6:00 on Tuesday, December 5th. We will meet atop Priceville Mountain at Libby’s Catfish and Diner on Highway 67. It’s easy to find if you’ve never been there. Just take Highway 67 out of Decatur, go to the top of the highest hill after it turns into a 2-lane road, and Libby’s will be on the right. Keep your eyes (and nose!) open and you won’t miss it.

See you then!
