175 people attended our 2012 Annual Dinner. The room had ample room for the chapter display tables and the Silent Auction tables. Everyone enjoyed the social hour before dinner with the no-host bar and the opportunity to look at the displays and make the rounds at the Silent Auction tables where a large number of interesting items were so artfully laid out by Cheryl Thomas. Gretchen McCausland’s beautiful floral centerpieces graced each table, making the room look inviting and festive.
