In an effort to ensure the safety of our members the regularly scheduled Membership Meeting on 02/13/14 has been CANCELLED. 

All weather forecasts show varying intensities of high winds, snow and sleet falling through out Thursday evening and continuing into early Friday morning.

Our distinguished guest speakers from Cornell Cooperative Extension have been duly notified.  Already there are plans in the works to reschedule their informative presentation entitled “The Childhood Lead Poisoning Primary Prevention Program.”   To be explored are three of the most common lead hazards found in and around homes.  The current objective is for CDARPO to host this informative workshop as soon as our March membership meeting.
