March Meeting

We held our monthly March meeting at Rock'N Coals in Bellingham.  We had a St. Patrick theme, so everyone dressed up in their best green.  We had the induction of a new member, Heather, by our president Kristine Shanahan.  She was sponsored by lion Maribeth.  We had a fun game with Fruit Loops by our Tail Twister Cheryl.  Maribeth was our big winner.
