This week's Presentation Speaker is Scott Grant, owner of Standfast Asset Management. Scott is well known for his detailed accounts of some of the most infamous events in local history. He will be speaking to us this Wednesday about the Summer of '64

Last week we welcomed Jen DeVore Richter of Boss Women Rock, LLC. She gave a great presentation on her marketing techniques, which she has used to build a successful career for herself and her clients' businesses. 

As a reminder to our Officers and Board Members, this Wednesday is our monthly board meeting directly following our luncheon. Look forward to seeing you there!

Deercreek Country Club

Officials know Deercreek's Robert Miller-designed layout brings out the competitive golfer in each of us with its challenging carries, demanding doglegs and sentinel pines lining the fairways.
Great shots are applauded here not only by your playing partners but also by the wing-beat of snowy egrets, ducks and great blue herons. Fast and true, our greens rise like emerald isles guarded by bunkers and gentle mounding.
