Thank You Message From SCGS Events Chair Kim Smith














On Saturday, December 9, the SCGS library was transformed into a festive holiday atmosphere, and filled with around 75 members for the Annual Meeting. 

The potluck luncheon table was overflowing with delicious salads, veggies and main dishes. And of course, the dessert tables were full of holiday cookies, pies and other wonders. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Hosting this event took lots of planning and preparation beforehand. I'd like to thank all our members who so willingly gave of their time both before and during the annual meeting. You made a difference!!
