A Good Time for All …

Our Winter luncheon, at Orlando’s in Commack was attended by 38 members.  It was a great time for colleagues to catch up on the latest news in each other’s lives.  Great food, especially deserts, were enjoyed by all.  Thanks to the generosity of attendees a dozen items were brought in and  raffled off, adding $175 to our scholarship fund.  Sorry we have no photos to share – we were all having such a good time no one thought to stop and take snaps.  Wishing all Happy and safe Holidays and a healthy New Year.
