Let’s open with a gentle reminder to send in your reservation for the May Annual Luncheon Meeting on Monday, May 20th at 12:00 at Princeton Windrows. A copy of the reservation form is attached to this Newsletter. Program co-chair, Janet Reiche, and Assistant Treasurer, Marlene Gordon, would like to firm up this event with Windrows, and your speedy response is important.
As the year closes, I want to thank retiring Recording Secretary Mary Giordmaine for all her hard work and patience with fortitude and determination. I also want to thank Mary Frances Stahler, our retiring Hospitality Chair. Her humor and hard work have produced a lot of calories and a good deal of humor.
The slate of officers and committee chairs is also included later in this Newsletter, to be voted on at the meeting.
MAY 20, 2019 – 12:00 NOON – THE ANNUAL BUSINESS LUNCHEON WILL BE HELD AT WINDROWS IN THE NASSAU ROOM.

Besides enjoying a delicious meal and a brief business meeting, during which you will have the opportunity to vote on next year’s Board, and there will be a lively program by the PRINCETON FESTIVAL SINGERS.
