The December SWARC Business Meeting
is being moved:
SWARC Meeting Location Change
To ALL SWARC Members,
Since we will not have the Weirton County Road Fire Station available for the next few months, our meetings will be held at a different location for the near future:
12/4 and continuing until further notice, the SWARC business meeting will be
held in the Weirton Room of the Millsop Community Center in Weirton, WV. The
meeting starts as usual at 7:00 PM.
