September, 2009 Meeting

I was unable to attend the September meeting as I was out of town; but I hear from my sources that Pat Knorr and Kristi Herring did a marvelous job of stepping in to take on the President's duties and mine as Secretary in Ann's and my absence.

Pat asked Sharon King and Ruth Malins to be the official photographers for the day and I have compiled their photos into a slideshow, which can be seen here.

Of special interest to me was seeing Ross Snodgrass's photo and how vibrantly healthy he looked. Welcome back Ross, we missed you!
