VMQG meeting at Trout Lake Park
We look forward to seeing you on Monday for our guild meeting! We’ll be meeting at a different location than usual so we can enjoy the summer weather at Trout Lake Park. The forecast is currently showing a high of 23C on Monday, which sounds great for a lovely evening at the park!
