Inaugural event

The party got going in our new, temporary, home on the second floor of the Harbor House. The conservatory room looked just like a stylish and exclusive cabaret venue.

With outstanding food from chef  Peter Coleman and some of the finest local wines, the evening was a terrific success.

The music was provided by the exceptional talents of Drew Harrison and Scott Southard who are the Lennon and McCartney of the internationally known Sun Kings Beatles tribute band. As a duo, The Two of Us 2, took us all on a journey of fond memories, wonderful music, and uninhibited singing.

The evening wound up with a short presentation by Peter Blackmore, the committee chairman inviting everyone attending to become members.

An interesting and lively question-and-answer session followed with everyone clearly excited to learn more and help frame and shape our new club.

The next event will be on March 23rd and registration will be open next week.
