USP Changes Regular Monthly Meeting Schedule

2012 CalendarStarting with January 2012, Union Street Players will hold our regularly scheduled membership meetings on the SECOND Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. USP has traditionally met the 1st Monday of each month. Because production weekends often fall around the beginning or end of a month, the Board of Directors regularly moved the meeting back a week. In addition, holidays such as the 4th of July often necessitated moving the meeting date. By moving our regular monthly meeting back to the 2nd Monday of each month, the Board of Directors hopes to avoid having to move the meeting date so often.

USP meets in Room 201 of the Pella Community Center. Meetings are open to the public though only members are allowed to vote in the meeting,
