Sandy presents last year’s Spirit of the Club Award to John Martin.
Who will be the 2017 recipient?

I hope to see most of you at Positive Pie Thursday at 5:45 for cash bar and 6:30 for dinner. I sure hope anybody who wants to attend RSVP’d. If you can’t make it at the last minute, let John Martin know to help with seating. Positive Pie is in City Place, the same building as Rehab Gym. Here is a link with a map and address: Positive Pie Barre. There should be parking behind the building and on the streets at that time of day. I don’t have a volunteer photographer for the event yet. Bring your camera and let me know if you can get some good shots!
