Summary of June 21 Get Together

I want to thank Cora, Vic, and Barbara for hanging out with me at the Rec Center on Sunday.  It was Cora’s first time to attend a Get Together. She and her husband and children have lived on Gatlinburg Drive for about 5 years. She saw the Get Together notice on the list.
