Our next meeting will be March 16, at 7 p.m. at the Venetian Club, 8030 Germantown Avenue.   Jim Foster, publisher of the Independent Voice, will speak on “Corruption in the Great Northwest.”

Since founding the Independent Voice in 2009, Foster has been the leading critic of one party misrule, cronyism, and corruption in Philadelphia journalism.

In addition to our speaker, we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s day and honoring our great Irish-American president, Ronald Reagan.

See you Monday.
