On May 13, 70+ members from all 6 New England states gathered for the first time since February 2020. An outdoor cookout was deemed a safe way for members to gather as COVID19 pandemic social restrictions were easing up. Club President Mike Burnham manned the grill, serving up hambugers and hot dogs amid a lively crowd. Old acquaintances were renewed and new friendships created. Treasurer Greg McKeown welcomed 16 new members.
Many thanks to the energetic volunteers: Elaine & Carmine Aquilino, Bob Sanchez, Faye McKeown, Mae-Ellen & Ed Dowdy, Donna Barrett, Anne Marie Peach, John & Linda Bowker, Loren St. Onge, and Dick Young.
