What a wonderful time we had Miraflores Winery for our July meeting; there was a great turnout and a number of guests. It still amazes me that we live so close to so many beautiful wineries!
I was delighted to announce that Norma Ray is willing to be President for 2017, unless we have others that want to also run for President? Voting will be at the November meeting.
Don’t think you have to be a long-time Member to serve on the board! I had only been a Member for a few months when I was asked to be treasurer; the following year, president! I hope new Members will consider becoming active; new Members mean new ideas!!
“That beautiful season . . . the Summer of All-Saints! Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. “
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Enjoy your summer!
