We had a wonderful snowy day for our annual potluck meeting last week with 27 members attending. Lots of wonderful food, and thank you to those who brought your recipes. A special thank you Pollock Pines Community Church for hosting us and Sandra Morgan for reserving the church and coming in early to help set up and make coffee.
We had one new guest, Debbie Brackmore, who will be joining the club. Welcome Debbie!
