We will be meeting at 6 p.m. in the party room of Happy Joe's Pizzeria at 314 SE 3rd St, Aledo. Some of us like to call in our supper order so there is no waiting in line. H.J. number is 309 – 582 – 5636.
Our December speaker had a very impressive list of ways to stop writer's block. We will have a handout of these helpful ideas to pass out to those who couldn't make the December 10 meeting.
