It looks like Tom caught all of us having a great time.

Also, at our March meeting we elected new officers for next year. They are: President: Helen Feeney

Vice President: Judy Cimbalnik Secretary: Jan Collins Treasurer: Hal Bucannan

Other events in March included the wonderful two-bus trip to Tampa Bay Downs and the Wisconsin singers who were especially energetic and outstanding this year. They have added quite a touch of humor to the show.

Next month, on May 19, we will meet outdoors at the Colony Cottage Picnic Pavilion area–weather permitting. If it rains, we will move inside our regular meeting room. This will be a side dish, salad, and dessert Pot Luck meal, with the club providing the fried chicken, plates, utensils and cups. If your last name begins with the letters A – I please bring a dessert item; if it begins with the letters J – Q bring a salad dish, any type of salad; and those of you with last names beginning with R – Z, bring a hardy side dish. After dinner we will play Bocce Ball or Ladder Ball. If you have a favorite outdoor game that you would like to play, please bring it.
