This Week  


This week’s GAM will be pretty quick.  This was our social evening meeting which was held at President Cheryl and Charlie’s home.  What a great home and beautiful view we had.  We got to test Cheryl’s famous Corn Chowder and she had every right to brag about it.  Also, we had crackers and cheese, chips and salsa along with make your own tacos which were absolutely delicious.  It was a very nice and relaxing time. 


Next Week 


October 1st – we are back to The Wamsutta Club and our guest speaker will be Kenneth Ramos and Scott Durkee from the City of New Bedford Energy Office.
