Last Week’s Program

Ronnie Coffey, Author of a book  “Highlands, 2006”, on the History of the Town of Highlands, gave a very interesting picture on the Town of Highlands dating back to its early years. She had a slide presentation, which recalled early businesses, names, and incidents that had the viewers mesmerized. Ronnie sold some books and autographed them. Great program.

President Jerry went over a litany of business items, including: District Governor nominee Roy Spells; the Group Study Exchange, April 26; Meeting at Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel on March 24th, (1 day) ; May 12th, Blooming Grove/Washingtonville dinner dance; Dinner Theater May 19th West Point (Ethel Merman);
