Anniversary Party a Big Success
Despite a number of competing (or complimentary) events taking place the same night, our 3rd Anniversary Party and New Members reception was a big success. Some people, particularly local officials, party-hopped because of the overload of engagements, but that just added to the buzz. Along with enjoying wonderful food organized by Barbara Matas and Ed Vorous, and drink graciously poured by Gary Tobin, guests honored three longtime members who received emeritus status, Dora Knell, Marvell Hamm, and Eleanor Kellogg-Smith.
Ed Vorous received the Volunteer of the Year Award.
