    This is the second year I have attended the Luncheon. It was twice the size and so many more people to meet. The workshops are inspiring. I came away learning something new and a smile on my face. The room has been a work in progress and just keeps getting better. Joy and laughter were the main themes. To my surprise I won two raffles which only added to the uplifting mood....See you next year!!
