LUNCHEON MEETING MINUTES December 18, 2018: Holiday Party and Annual Meeting
From check-in to check-out, the 2018 Holiday Party was a delight.
The sound of The Salvation Army Band, led by our own Major Raymond Erickson-King (Human Services; The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Center), greeted guests as they stepped off the elevator, leading the way to the meeting room. Upon arrival, everyone was treated to a glass of champagne or other beverage to celebrate an outstanding year for our Club.
