Installation – A Brand New Year

It was a garden party installation that started with cocktails and live music.  PDGs Carl and Klaus installed President Austin and then the officers.  Several awards were presented by President Austin including one to a valued 23-year member (Beverly Gray) who is moving away (see the next news blog for details and photos); former member Jane Woodworth for her help with Club activities throughout the years; and to Honorary Member Pauline White for writing the bulletins, marketing efforts, website updates, and numerous other activities.  During the event Austin was also named a Paul Harris Fellow.  Dinner on the patio followed.  The outside event finished just in time before it started to rain, however, the celebration continued inside.  We are looking forward to a great new year!
