The committee consisted of Jack Mushin, Chairman- Bob Aceto- Glen Newell, and Terry McAvoy.

Because we are a small club, we incorporated eight volunteers to help with registration and seating.

Our Soprano Amanda Pogach was a great highlight as was our distinguished and renowned speakers.

Listen to Amanda sing our National Anthem and God Bless America on our video. What a Treat!
