April 2023 Meeting

On the 4th of April, we held our meeting at Justin and Kristy’s house; thanks for hosting us! Casper got 26.7″ of snow in the prior 24 hours (WOOF!), but luckily we got a couple feet less than that, so turn-out for our ‘Springtime In Wyoming’ meeting was pretty decent. Welcome back to Roger Stearns, (pictured above) who last visited 8-10 years ago. And welcome to Kristi AlmaJose, our guest for the first time.

Kristi is in this shot; see her hands holding the phone? Chris is kind of hogging up the frame…

Justin and Kristy built an addition they call the Fun Room, and it was a good fit for our gathering. Kristy (and Nico) also made treats and coffee for us. It was a fun, relaxed atmosphere, a most pleasant meeting.

While we didn’t have a group song per se, Roger invited us all to play along with him so it was just as good! Photo credits this month go to Nancy McKenzie.
