A QUICK THANK YOU FOR NOW

Nancy Galdo wants to thank everyone who helped make this show the record success that it was.  A more detailed article about the show will appear next month but in the meantime she wanted to express her extreme gratitude, and a complete list of those who went beyond the call of duty will appear in the March issue.  What we can say is that the Raffle Table, Club Shell Table and the Craft Sales Table went way beyond last years’ sales AND the dealers were more than delighted!  You will also note another record….the following new members listing…….
