For our next Chapter get-together, we are invited to two member’s ponds on the north side of Indianapolis, Chester Bailey, and Jim Wood.  Both ponds are poured concrete and were built last summer by Russ Peters.  I am excited to see both ponds!

The meeting date is Saturday, August 12, time to be determined….we are planning to start at one home with lunch pond side, and dessert at the other home.  Please put the date on your calendar, more details as the date approaches.
