Members spend a Sunday afternoon socializing and having fun sampling members' culinary delights.  We washed down appetizing treats and delectable desserts with thirst quenching lemonades. The ice cream sundae bar encouraged mindless indulgence! A special thanks to Yonna for being so quick to volunteer with the clean-up.


Congratulations to Patty Ledezma for winning the Lemonade contest.  She created a Mexican lime-lemonade that refreshed the palate.  Betty Farrell's razzle-dazzle raspberry laced lemonade took 2nd place and quenched the thirst perfectly.


Tom and Diane Restelli warmly opened their home to the club for our annual summer lemonade social party.  Many, many thanks to Tom and Diane for their gracious hospitality.


Please welcome DIANE CASEY to the club!  
Get to know Diane better when she presents her Ice-Breaker speech this month.
