Ordinary people performing EXTRAORDINARY work


Speakers - 2016-17

Our weekly meetings start at 12:30 every Thursday in the Smithfield Station dining room.  The speaker presentation starts at approximately 1:00 and runs for a half hour, plus open time after adjournment for any member questions.

Wayne Willis is our Program Chairman for Speakers.

We try to get speakers of general interest to our members.  Which means we avoid speakers who essentially want to make a 'sales pitch'.  No speaker is required for the first meeting of each month, which is our 'Social Meeting' to learn more about each other and discuss events of interest within the Club. We are happy to pay for lunch for the speaker and one additional guest; if any speakers feel required by their program to include more than one guest, please clear it with the Club Treasurer.
