Running, Potluck, Multimedia Presentations, Meeting and Officer Nominations all happened at the November 4th gathering at the YMCA.
Outstanding weather for the first week of November was enjoyed by all that went out on the runs before the potluck.
Thank You to Janice & Jack for bringing the pasta and French bread for all to enjoy. Of course, all of the other salads, beverages, desserts and goodies were well received and consumed too!
