In order to keep our members and the public safe, PAS will be meeting virtually on Zoom starting September 2020. Meetings will still take place at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month and the meeting links will be available on our website, Facebook, via email, and in the newsletter. We hope that you will join us and check this web page for links to the individual meetings!

The PAS Board of Directors meets on the second Tuesday of each month via Zoom, prior to the membership meeting, at 5 p.m. Members are welcome to attend these planning meetings and if you would like to do so, please email Meghan Mumford at and we she forward you our board meeting link.

The Zoom platform is very user friendly and can be downloaded onto your computer or you can simply attend through your internet browser. The following link and information can help get you set up and ready to enjoy our PAS meetings right in your own home!
