Chapter Activities

Our next luncheon will be 9 Dec 2017 (this is to make up for the Sep luncheon which was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma). To put us in the holiday spirit we will have a holiday music program for the luncheon. Eearang Ahn will provide the music. Our chapter has five luncheons a year featuring guest speakers on diverse topics. The luncheons are on the third Saturday of January, February, March, September, and November and begin at 11:30 am. Due to hurricane Irma, the September luncheon was cancelled, and there will be a special holiday luncheon on 9 Dec 2017, in its place. Reservations are required. You can contact Larry Vick at 561-434-2592 (e-mail jameslvick@yahoo.com) for more information. We publish a newsletter, "In Step," five times a year. "In Step" provides details on our luncheons (including a mail in reservation form) and has a calendar of upcoming events. If you would like a copy of "In Step" contact Larry Vick at 561-434-2592 or e-mail jameslvick@yahoo.com.
