PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
   
We took a break from our typical meeting agenda last week and enjoyed some time learning about the various types of wine with Jeanne Maron. Jeanne is well versed in the wine industry and owns a shop in St. Augustine, The Gifted Cork. She offered a great presentation and we'll look forward to having her speak again next year. 

Don't forget we've got a Meet-a-Member and Monthly Golf Outing scheduled in November. These are great ways to meet other members and introduce new people to the club.
 
 
See you Wednesday, 

Steve DeSorbo 
2018 President
