Last week we hosted our Annual Past Presidents' Day. During this very special meeting, we honored and acknowledged those who have served as President for our great Club. Past Presidents in attendance gave us a fun and nostalgic walk down memory lane as they each spoke of the most memorable moments of their time in office. Their accomplishments were beyond impressive and laid out what is the raison d'etre of the club today!

2019 1st Vice President
