This year's event was held at the Susquehanna Township High School. Our club provided great information, coloring books, and plenty of snacks. All had a great time! 
We welcomed three new members to our club during our meeting on July 7th. Welcome to our club, Mira Follett, Phyllis Hicks, and Malikul Muhamad! COVID delayed our official presentation of certificates, but that did not stop these members from serving our community and supporting our club. Past President, Linda Spotts, had the honor of pinning our newest members.
