Our Annual Luncheon allows members and their guests to gather. The event includes raffle baskets, a Split the Pot drawing, and interactive activities. A spontaneous challenge made at a recent luncheon added $2282.00 to our net profit!
Each year we raise funds to enable our mission of community service. Members review applications and proposals from both new and returning organizations.
Members also spend time together over lunch or dinner. This time allows us to develop friendships, introduce new acquaintances, and provide support for one another.
