Investment Group at BESC
This is an informal group that meets weekly at 10 a.m. Thursdays at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

This group does not invest any shared funds as a group and is not an investment club in that sense. A new group that restricts its subject matter to options trading also meets at BESC, but meets at 10 a.m. on the first and third Wednesdays twice a month. Anyone interested in attending can contact Harry Watanabe at 505.662.6284, Don Blossom at 505.984.9995, or just show up at meetings.
