Meetings:  Regular meetings will be held Thursdays at seven o’clock pm, unless otherwise rescheduled with the consensus of the group.  Special meetings can be called as long as the group agrees upon them.  Any member of the group has the authority to call a meeting.  Leadership at meetings will be on a rotating basis.
