Next Meeting:

The next meeting of SEARCH will be in January 2020.  As soon as we are sure of the date we’ll post it here.  The location will be in Burnsville.



At the November 14, 2019 meeting we discussed ways that you can get involved in SEARCH’s activities.  If you weren’t there, or just need to refresh your memory, take a look at the list here and get in touch with us.  We invite your participation in any form that engages your talents and interests.
