Member Appreciation Dinner – April 3
As the sky glowed orange from yet another beautiful Tucson sunset, the private brick patio at the Stillwell House downtown was full of the sounds of planning and reminiscing as scores of members and guests enjoyed a Membership Appreciation Dinner. Throughout the evening the soothing background music of soloist Manny Herrera accompanied the informal setting. What a nice change from our usual indoor dining! Let your Events chair know how much you enjoyed this evening and if you want more like this.
