Best wishes to all,
Our first meeting of 2015 took place on January 19th. Regular business was conducted first followed by the Installation of Officers for 2015. As your President for 2015, I look forward to an enjoyable and successful year. I want to welcome all of my Executive and Committee Members and wish you a wonderful year ahead as well. Stay tuned for announcements and updates to our Calendar.
Best wishes to all,

Hard to believe this year is almost over - it has flown by. We had several annual reports presented at the meeting portion of the afternoon including election of the new Executive. Warm congratulations to all! Installation will take place in January!
