Everyone piled into a line for salad and the dinner began. Wojo, Gene and Frank, along with able kitchen help put on a feast. I believe the entrée was Baron of Beef and Baron of Ham (?). Or should that be Earl of Ham. Great mashed potatoes, vegetables gravy and atsa hot horseradish accompanied. I spoke to no one who was disappointed. The kitchen crew received deserved accolades.

This Spousal (?) Dinner is greatly anticipated. It is a true highlight of the Chapter’s year. Well done by all who put it on. For those of you who were not there – you missed a good time.
