What a fun night. Rose friends. Great food. Fun Surprises. Awards. New Officers. And a magician!
A highlight of our year is the annual awards night and new officer installation. This year we returned to lovely and historical Serenity Restaurant in Zionsville where the food and hospitality are outstanding. Our entertainment was Craig Stone, magician. We are all still trying to figure out how he does what he does.

BRONZE MEDAL OF HONOR
Teresa Downham was the recipient of the Bronze Medal – the highest local society honor. Though she was shocked – no one else was. She has truly served above and beyond!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
Our society is blessed with so many outstanding members!
NEW OFFICER INSTALLATION
John and Donna Hefer installed the incoming board with a clever (and delicious) candy bar theme. They never run out of creative ideas!
