May 4, 2022 - Law Day Celebration


SVPA usually meets the second Wednesday of the month. Our meetings are from 12:00 p.m to 1:00 p.m. 


Meeting Months:











No meeting in January.

*Summer Months:  June, July, August are social events, to be held at local venues.


R.S.V.P to

Social events . . .

The Summer Socials were fun and we’d like to continue having them each month, in addition to the regular meeting.  Mondays seemed to work as a good day, so the fourth Monday in the month will be designated for social events after work.  If, as time goes by, there appears to be another day that works best, it will be considered.  A location will be suggested and emailed to all members.  If no one is able to attend in a particular month, it will be canceled.
