Flash From the Past
A blizzard cancelled the February Luncheon but the weather copoperated in March, so we convened at Carrara's. 
Later in the  month, we took a bus trip to the Allenberry Dinner theater to see Anything Goes. 
The book group had so many members that we formed an afternoon offshoot.
