Outstanding Event Yesterday

Posted on Updated on

A message from President Lenore:

Good Day:

I want to congratulate the entire club on the very fine event that they delivered yesterday. From the meal, to the speakers, to the attendees and the helpers, you certainly made me proud to be a part of this Club. Take a bow!

It was  good to see former members and visitors enjoy themselves as much as the regular members obviously did. Today those responsible for mounting the event have earned a well deserved rest. Enjoy.
Best,
Lenore
