Association Meeting last Thursday night

Great to see so many neighbors attend the Association Meeting last Thursday night. What a nice tribute to Charlie Mulligan,.
Everyone enjoyed the social time before the meeting along with the wonderful finger food supplied by Family Meal. They are a nice and talented couple that would love to hear from anyone interested in their food services. Below is the link to their website also in the photo section I have pics of their card.
