President's Message


I would like to thank Tom and Jackie Hassell for hosting our Steak Night Fellowship at their home.  Thank you to Stephanie Corso, Derek Chaisson and Pete Benoit for coordinating, setting up and cooking for the event.  We had a great time and I was pleased to see so many of our members enjoying themselves.


“We know that without food we would die. Without fellowship, life is not worth living.”
