HAVQG Meetings

Monthly guild meetings are held on Sunday afternoons from 2:30-4:30pm.  Meetings in September and December 2022 and January, February, March and June of 2023 are held on the second Sunday of the month.  Those in October and November 2022 and May 2023 are on the first Sunday.  

The locations for the meetings may change from month to month owing to a meeting site needing the room for a prior obligation.  Check carefully each month as to where the meeting will be held.  January 2023 will be via ZOOM.

Guests are always welcome and encouraged!  Non-members may attend individual guild meetings for a fee of $5.00 per meeting.  There is plenty of parking and handicap access.

NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, the Guild President will decide by 9:00 a.m. of that morning whether or not to hold a meeting.  A cancellation will be announced on NEWS40 Storm Trackers WGGB-TV and on this website.
