What a great meeting we had this month. We were very excited to have Teri Flemal and her husband Lou, visiting all the way from New York. It was great to be able to meet our artist who lives the furthest from Hawaii, and we all hit it off just like we were old friends. This month we changed it up a bit and met at Nico's Restaurant. http://nicospier38.com/ The staff was very gracious and the food was ono.
We can't wait to see what August will bring our way.
