35th Anniversary Luncheon

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful committee who worked on the details of our Anniversary Lunch.  Judy Herdeg was our chapter member of Vicmead Hunt Club who suggested we choose Vicmead for our luncheon site.

It was a beautiful day in a perfect setting for the speaker, the exhibit, our delicious lunch and being with most of Brandywine Chapter members.

Judy was also able to book our wonderful speaker, Tricia Wilson Nguyen, hosted her and got her back and forth to the airport.  Tricia helped us by agreeing to come for a one-day event in her very busy life. 

Karen West and Kathy Adams put together our slide show with lots of pictures from our chapter archives.  We will have to see that again.  Nancy George and Jackie VanGrofski made our perfect-for-the-season centerpieces.

Karen Shueler and Kathy Adams were responsible for the exhibit of the work of chapter members.  JoAnn Mchugh made the invitations for you all and Cleo Robbins and JoAnn put together the scissor fobs for the favors.

Jean Snyder was responsible for the R.S.V.P.'s and providing the number of attendees.  Thanks to our membership who invited friends and came in record numbers to help celebrate our 35th. 

It was like planning a wedding with lots of wedding planners to help.  Thank you all!  I am already looking forward to our 40th!

Judy Herdeg and JoAnn McHugh, Co-chairmen
