Upcoming Events

Thank you to all the members who came out the enjoy our final social event this past Thursday -  the aperitivo and jazz concert by the Dr. Dixie Jazz Band. It was a truly singular event and a real privilege. For those of you who missed the event, check out the photos on our website, courtesy of guest Gaby Mann, for some highlights. In addition, for members who were not with us that evening, we wish to inform you that the new Board of Directors for the 2019-2020 year was unanimously elected, please see the May event page for the list of members who will serve the association next year. Finally, please note that due to poor attendance at the annual June picnic in the past few years, there will not be a June picnic this year.
