We were excited to celebrate Mrs. Reta Thomas’ (past president) birthday as well as handle the necessary business at a beautiful put together venue (shout out to our current President for a wonderful committee meeting!)

Mrs. Brandie Garner honored her committee meeting by giving out soft sided coolers and beach mats!!!!
