Welcome and Lunch
Out-going President Fred Ciminello welcomed everyone to our Christmas Holiday Luncheon, and thanked all for their support as he conducted the office of President for these years, and also shared his appreciation for the support of so many with kind thoughts, words, cards, etc. after the death of his wife Kay. Lunch was then served by church volunteer crew.

For today’s program, we were enthusiastically entertained by the Land of Legend Barbershoppers.
After singing, they shared with us to look forward to their annual Midland Theater program: “Bubba’s Moonshine Mayhem” on April 20th. Senior ticket rate is just $10.
A short business meeting was called to order by Fred. Announcement was made that Fred received a letter from a member who would like our meeting minutes read at the meeting for those who do not have access to the LCRTA website. Something to consider in the New Year.
