I am sure that if you were at our Gala on Saturday night you would agree that our Centennial Steering Committee, co-chaired by Adrienne Lew and Bev Perea, did an outstanding job planning and implementing our Gala. The venues were beautifully decorated, the photo opportunities were loads of fun, the food was delicious, and the memories created that night were unforgettable. I sincerely want to thank all the individuals who made this night possible. If you want to see that night captured in photos, please click on the link at the end of this letter. You can look at four different photo groupings to enjoy.

IMPORTANT REMINDER!
