Induction of New Officers and Award Recipients

At the June 15, 2015 dinner meeting, 1st Vice District Governor Elect, Al Goldstein inducted the 2015-2016 new slate of officers: President Jeni Williams, Vice-President Mark Cotrupi, 2nd Vice-President Peter Strople (who was unable to attend the meeting), Treasurer Joe Keegan, Secretary Sally Sibulkin, Membership Chairman Dawn Law, Tail Twister Anne Forts and Lion Tamer Pat Keegan…

And the following AWARDS were presented — not all the recipients received the “real” plaque, however.  Some were in the mail, so with some quick thinking on behalf of some of the officers a paper copy was awarded
