This Week : Lunch Meeting , Elisa Parker - See Jane Do

Last Week: Club Music Contest
On a damp, dreary Thursday, our two music contestants, George Daly (on right), and Ryan Brot (on left), lit up the dining room at the National Hotel with their inspired piano performances. It was also great to see their parents in attendance supporting the boys' efforts Ryan won first prize and both boys will go forward to compete in our area contests in a few weeks. Also, many thanks to our team of Gayle Denny, Dave Bunje, Nicole Dillard, Chris Newsom, Tom Ryan, and Nancy Kemp for coordinating.this contest.
