GSJA Officer/Trustees Meeting:

At a meeting of our officers and trustees this past August, the following was decided: The GSJA will no longer pay for wine at restaurants that have liquor licenses. It has become too expensive. We will bring out own wine to those venues that do not have a liquor license.  We will continue to pay for entertainment at the Holiday Party.  We will no longer have any meetings in the summer, due to a lack of interest. All pledged to get our members and friends to future meetings.
