A quick review of the calendar for the balance of
the year. Our next event is Childrenís Hospital October 24, 2 to

Center. In December the Annual Dinner/Christmas Party December
4, at DíImperioís Monroeville. Please mark your calendar and
save that date. Detail on the Christmas Party to come later.
