We had three Birthdays this week:  Vic George, Howard Richards and Bill Topham. We sang with the accompaniment of Chris Ludwa from Bay View. Howard and Bill decided to skip Rotary today so as to not have to hear their birthday song

With Howard Richards and Steve Cross gone we had the privilege of having two of the cast from Pippin; Chandler Cummings and Stephan perform some of the music. It is great to have this fabulous talent available for the summer


Diamonds & Denim:  Reg Smith let us know that Diamonds & Denim has started selling tickets and will be at the Steel Drum performance in the Rose Garden today. The two things we need are ticket sales and things for the auction. To purchase tickets go to: Link
