CHAPS could not operate without the support of its members. CHAPS does not require members to do anything more than they are willing to do. This may be being a paid up member, helping with fundraising or being on committees that interest you. Your choice of a passive or more active roll.
Meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, 7 P.M. at the Cochrane Historical Museum located in the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site. Meetings last about 1 hour with coffee afterwards. Both long-time residents and newcomers welcome. There is lots of good conversations and friendly atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you there.
