2018 ERC Program Schedule

We usually meet the first Tuesday of each month, although in some months this is moved to the second Tuesday due to proximity to holidays or Election Day.  In July, we usually have a picnic to which we invite candidates to speak, and in December we have our annual Holiday Dinner and Auction (December date varies, but is usually the first or second Saturday). We take a break and have no meeting in August.

Regular meetings are held at Red Lion Hotel Bellevue. Click here for directions. A light buffet is served at 6:00PM, and the program begins at 6:30PM. Please Click Here to RSVP if you plan to attend the upcoming meeting.
