As usual members started gathering around noon at the Vieh's for this months meeting. Charlie and Lana run a small but quaint bed and breakfast in San Benito. Besides running the bed and breakfast they also raise unique birds and grow palms of course!! Below you will find various pictures of our visit to the Vieh's.
