Person of the Year Dinner Honoring Sherry Lansing
DATE & TIME: Wednesday, April 13, 6:00 p.m.
The Club will proudly honor Sherry Lansing at our annual Person of the Year Dinner on April 13 and invitations will be sent next month. For now, please save the date on your calendar and make plans to attend. Since we expect an excellent response to this special event, and the Tournament House can only seat 110 for dinner, we encourage you to RSVP as soon as you receive your invitation. The February newsletter will have further information about the dinner.
