May 2024

Attached please find the May 2024 issue of the chapter newsletter-- The Sarasota Breeze - and the reservation form for the Wednesday May 8th Luncheon at Michaels on East.

NOTE: The luncheon is on a Wednesday as most of the county graduations conflict with our normal luncheon date on the 3rd Friday of the month.

We would very much appreciate if you would consider sponsoring the price of a luncheon for a student and/or parent. Please add the additional luncheons to your reservation form - or if you are unable to attend, please send the reservation form with your check to Mary Gordon as indicated on the Luncheon Reservation Form (Page 11)

Looking forward to seeing you at the May luncheon and the YAHOO events.
