Our Annual Meeting and Luncheon featuring Sue McGinty, a local author, as our guest speaker, was held on May 7, 2015 at the Madonna Inn.  It was a great success with over 80 members and guests attending.  Our thanks to all who attended, to Sue for a wonderful talk and to Sally Hillis, Luncheon Chairperson, who, with the support of her committee and board members, planned and created the Luncheon.

Below are a few images taken during the luncheon as well as a video showing most of Sue McGinty’s talk.
