Thanks for a great Earth Day Dinner!!
Thanks to all who came and contributed to our 8th Annual Earth Day Dinner at the Caboto Club, our major fund-raiser of the year. The posters and poetry winners were great, featured talk on stem cells and cancer by Dr. Lisa Porter was outstanding, and even the food, the silent auction, and other bits came together to make for a most enjoyable and fun-filled evening!
