Hello Sunupians,
It was great to see everyone Wednesday. We had one of my favorite activities: the induction of two new members.
Welcome Steve and Bob!
I am so happy that you joined our service above self club. I know you’ve been coming as a guest for awhile but it’s nice to know you truly see value in helping others.
