Notable April 17th Date In History

2004 – President Cathy led the club to “Ike Hall” and the “Sound of Music”, where Rotarians and guests enjoyed a delicious dinner before witnessing an exemplary performance of Rogers & Hammerstein’s wonderful musical. She wishes to thank all those who assisted in this event, including those who donated gifts to be raffled, those who purchased gifts, those who wrapped the gifts, those who “hustled” raffle tickets, those who served on committee’s, and last but not least those who attended and brought relatives & Friends, It was truly a notable event!
