A bright sunny evening as the OAPA board meets for its monthly board meeting. The building is looking nice with recent significant repairs and a fresh coat of paint.
Bill Green and Marty Mahoney volunteered to host this year's annual OAPA Spring Thaw. Long time members, and brand new members were all in attendance. The Membership Committee did a spectacular job setting up for a successful turnout.
