The year 2020 was a year like no other. All in person get togethers were somewhat or totally non-existent for many organizations. Hopefully, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and we can "get back to business" soon. In the meantime, HMVFA has sent out our annual dues notices to all members. Please contact Financial Secretary Phyllis Dinkelacker at HMVFAfinsect@gmail.com if you have any questions regarding dues notices.
