Last Wednesday evening at the Provence House, we enjoyed a fantastic CPR / AED Trainingfrom Gina Robles. All those that attended were pleased with what they learned and the information they are able to share with their families. Sometimes we just don’t know what we don’t know. Thank you so much Gina! AND, thank you so much Jim & Alma Stjern for being the benefactors in this event! For those of you that take care of the Provence House during the weekend parties, please make sure you know where our AED machine is located. Hopefully we never need it. 😉
And then to follow at our Thursday morning meeting, we enjoyed listening to the Chairman of Fleet Week, Gordon Rutherford, share the terrific turnout of events that took place over Veteran’s week 11/11/19. Perfect time to share in the Veteran’s Day Parade!!
