Why are all these people smiling?
They attended the GBCC November luncheon and ate delicious food, enjoyed lovely scenery, caught up with friends, and made new connections – what an excellent return on their time and lunch money!
Thank you to Amanda, Carolyn, and Charlene with Beaver Lake Nature Center for hosting our luncheon, which was also our annual meeting. We are fortunate to have Beaver Lake Nature Center in our backyard, with 9 miles of trails in 661 acres of natural beauty and over 400 different programs each year.
Thank you to Anna and the team at Angry Garlic for providing our fabulous lunch. The salad, the soup, the sandwiches, and those addictive garlic bites were a big hit!
In addition to the food and fellowship, we reviewed what has taken place with GBCC over the past year and talked about what is to come. We elected our officers for the next year:
· Matt Hunt, Heritage Insurance Agency – President
· Melanie Randolph, Your Window to the World LLC – Vice President
· Christine Dempsey, Solvay Bank – Secretary
· Melissa Hennessey, SECNY FCU – Treasurer
We recognized and thanked outgoing GBCC treasurer Tina Solomon with Primerica, who has contributed so much to during her tenure with the GBCC board.
