    It was a wonderful time today at the Bel -Air Hotel. I enjoyed very much meeting Toni; she's is great fun and a very friendly organizer. I enjoyed meeting Lynn also.
    I've joined this group....I'd like to see what other events they come up with.
    Thanks to Stephani for telling me about it and arranging so that I could join the tea today! The Hotel is absolutely beautiful, especially the greenery everywhere, and the food was awesome.
    Hope to see youall again soon.

    I wished I could had attended this, however I am going to be out of town. I consider Hotel Bel Air as a second home. I have been going there over 33 years ! ( I was a baby then of course ! :)
