Well, our co-chairpersons, Nancy Heffernan and Pat Barry, certainly applied this concept as they organized the closing luncheon at Russo’s on the Bay. The food was delicious, the service perfect, the liquid refreshment flowing and the ambiance was beautiful! The pocketbooks for each lady were filled with all kinds of goodies, and were also unique and useful. Well done, ladies! Thanks to all your efforts it was a great day!!

And a round of applause goes to Eileen Watson who acted as the emcee and did all the handicapping! The planning, coordinating and execution of all the awards were fabulous!! Many thanks to Eileen for her gift as a storyteller and her expertise at the microphone!

Fred got home from his Sunday round of golf later than normal and very tired. “Bad day at the course?” his wife asked. “Everything was going fine,” he said. “Then Harry had a heart attack and died on the 10th tee.” “Oh, how awful!” “You’re not kidding. For the whole back nine it was hit the ball, drag Harry, hit the ball, drag Harry.”

Hope the season doesn’t “drag” for you! God Bless and have a safe, happy and healthy year!!
