Our wine tasting fundraiser was held on October 27th. It was a sell out! As far as I know that has never happened before. It was such a fun and successful event. With the funds we raised we will be able to award 3 scholarships. Thank you to Debbie Straw and her committee for their fantastic job. To our members who donated baskets and attended the event, I can’t thank you enough. Everyone pulled together. That’s what’s it all about.  Our November meeting will be held on the 21st. Our speaker will be Mary Jones, who hosts a weekly radio show on WENG Radio called All About Women. Thanksgiving is almost upon us and then we’ll be thinking about Christmas. We will have a special holiday celebration. Stay tuned for details.
