Those who attended Fun Day commented on it. Generally, everyone had a good time.

No information yet on cost. Anyone wanting to go will have to make their own hotel reservations. We are assuming more information will follow.

Anchovies are good for you? True or False? True, although high in salt their benefits outweigh the high sodium.
Margie then had the chapter sample a delicious tray of anchovies, cream cheese, green olive, and salami on a cracker. Some of our members who thought they did not like Anchovies discovered they were not all that bad. Thank you, Margie, for a
With no other business meeting was adjourned with our motto
