Coming Up – Spring Luncheon


President’s Message from Marcia Edwards

As our club year draws to a close, I wish to thank all the members for the opportunity to serve as your president. It has been a gift to get to know many of you with whom I previously had only a passing acquaintance. Thank you for sharing your musical talents, your time, and your friendship.
The Spring Luncheon date is Wednesday, May 18, 11 AM. By now, you should have received your invitation in the mail. Please RSVP by May 12.   The luncheon is $25, and you may include your dues of $50 for 2016-2017 with your luncheon reservation if you’d like. Our luncheon program will feature this year’s winners of the Wilcox, Maurer, Putter, and Rudd Awards. I hope to see you there!
