Annual Luncheon Review

45 members signed up to attend our chapter’s annual luncheon in January at Mama Mia’s in Campbell:

  • Lots of congenial talk among friends and new friends
  • Good food, including lots of garlic chicken, we were told
  • Door prizes won – 6 bags of goodies plus 2 take-home dinners
  • Time went by fast, which is a tell-tale sign of a good time!
  • Lynda Martinez took group photos, some of which are posted here on our website.  Thank you, Lynda!

Our chapter is still looking for someone to step up as head of a Public Relations committee, especially someone with a background in customer service and a deep knowledge of the local area.

Hope to see a lot of our members at the annual winter lunch on Tuesday, January 21, at Mama Mia’s.  Great conversation; great food.
