October 10 Unit Game Brunch Thank You
Congratulations to Joyce Denyven, our unit's newest Gold Life Master, who was acknowledged with a very nice cake, at the game. We have photos in the Unit 500 Photo Gallery of the event. Here are the game results. The unit board worked especially hard to bring this event to you. Thank you to all the people who helped, especially: Susan Lampert (food setup), Ann Bauman, Bob Bauman (refreshments), Ann Conrad, Charlie Conrad, Carla Francis, Kate Hare, Ann Vargas and Jean Wood (decorations set up). We had 22 tables of people who really enjoyed themselves. And... Thanks so much to Director, Terry Terzian who easily overcame a massive computer gliche.
