Convention…we were super stars! Check out the attendees in their

My trip to Ireland was wonderful although the first day it rained,
snowed, hailed, sleeted, and blew! I hope everyone is looking forward to
our “field trip” to the Link Columbia Transfer Station May 14. Be sure
to read Teri’s membership spotlight for details. We will have a sack
lunch that night before our ride so bring your $10.00. If you need a
ride, let Teri or I know.
Our end of the year luncheon will be June 8, 2019 at 11:30 at the
Wenatchee Golf and Country Club. The callers will be checking in with
you around May 22 for your luncheon choices. We need to let the
management know about our numbers and choices by May 28. The following
are your lunch choices:
1. Apple gorgonzola chicken salad with a roll.
2. Grilled chicken Caesar salad with a roll.
3. Turkey croissant sandwich with fruit.
4. Shrimp salad croissant sandwich with avocado & tomato.
