Dine Out #1 Brunch a BIG Success


10 May 2015-121415

Dave Perkins organized a Brunch at Crow Canyon Country Club, and for the 5th year was rewarded with a full-house. If you missed it, put it on your calendar for next year!

The food was terrific, and the company even better – plenty of mimosas (or plain champagne if you preferred) kept the conversations stimulating.

Thank you Dave and Jo Anne for organizing a great Sunday Brunch for us lucky Branch 8 members.
