A June/July/August Message from Our President

Kathy Roth

What a wonderful year 2014-­2015 [was] -­ 10 new members, great speakers, a wonderful show, a very educational display and a very informative article in the EAPG Journal by our Study Group. Thank you each and every member, including the new members, for all your help in making this [past] year a team effort full of fun and excitement.

The new officers and I [all] hope you will enjoy your summer months and [please] find time to get out to [an] estate sale or two, along with all the local flea and antique markets, shops and auctions.

Take time to enjoy your family and recharge for a new year. With that, dear members, I wish you a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you in September at David Gestlerʹs lovely home.

God bless.

Once again, welcome everyone and we look forward to seeing you at our September meeting for 2015-2016!
