There was a mix-up when people picked up their yearbooks. Names of members were on the back cover but not everyone noticed this. As a consequence, some picked up a yearbook with another person’s name and then were also mailed a yearbook. 

If you did not receive a yearbook, please let our membership chairman, Claire Flynn know. 

The GCGC Board expects that normal in person monthly meetings will begin in October 2021.
