Examples include book sales, the annual wine tasting and the annual “Taste of Chocolate.” All board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month except December when there is no meeting. All meetings are held at the Galway Town Hall and begin at 7pm. They generally last about an hour. If you are interested in joining the board please call Barb, 882-6621.
