Senior Branch S-524 branch officers decided to try something a little different for our Annual Summer Dinner. Sometimes it’s good to change things up a bit. We had a few members who really liked what we had been doing and were a little hesitant. Usually we have a summer dinner with several other branches. It is very hard to meet your members and get to know them when there are so many members from other branches. But in the end we were getting two thumbs up from everyone that came to dinner. Everyone seemed to enjoy meeting new people. And a few of them even discovered they live close to each other! That was a goal of the branch officers – to create friendships and see what we all have in common.
We had dinner at Matteo’s in Grand Pacific Junction, Olmsted Falls, OH. Little goody bags awaited our members at each place setting. It is a very quaint little town and very scenic. It was great to be able to meet everyone in person and get to know them. Everyone enjoyed their dinner! We had a few choices to choose from.
We were lucky enough to have a few of the Cleveland District Board come to the dinner, President Joyce Lechman, Secretary Barbara Sekerak and 2nd VP Barbara Shedlock. Thank you for coming. We enjoyed having you there.
We ended the evening with a Raffle. Thank you to all the members of S-524 who came to the dinner. It was a pleasure and we hope that we can do something similar next year.
