2009 ANNUAL MEETING TO BE AT NASHVILLE

May 1-3

The Saturday afternoon TOS Board of Directors Meeting and the Saturday evening banquet and Annual Business Meeting will take place at Crievewood United Methodist Church‎ , 451 Hogan Rd, across from Ellington Agricultural Center.  Birding on the Ag Center grounds is usually productive and it is worth a visit before dinner.
