Still Awaiting The FOOD

On a cool and misty late Friday, June 17th, 22 brave souls descended into the depths of the Twin Rivers Resort for Rotary’s Annual End of the Year party where good food is consumed, the changing of the guard takes place, and Rotarians are recognized for their accomplishments during the past year.  Milling around the snack tables, the troops were anticipating the highlight of the day...ARRIVAL OF THE FOOD! Ron had cooked up some smoked pork, fresh vegetables, roasted potatoes, and fresh rolls for sandwiches.
