President's Report

Greetings to all NACE members and friends,

WOW!!! What a great meeting we had this past week. Over 90 attendees for our 1st meeting of the year. Your enthusiasm and energy are what make our chapter so successful. I would like to send a thank you to our donors who gave their time and materials to make our meeting seamless. Brett Charles Rose Photography offered his gifts and talents, and immortalized our event with over 100 photos that are on our website as we read along. ( as well as facebook page) Thank you to Scott Daniels of Vario Productions for his work and materials for the AV and sound for the night. And, Thank you to Flowers by Coley whom created and livened up our tables with their centerpieces in lovely copper containers.

As you know our guest speakers that night were the owners of Jackie's Jams, David and Risa Baron. They brought with them and shared their years of expertise on the jam, jelly and preserve industry. We all were gifted with a "walk away" offering of their one of a kind strawberry chocolate jam, just in time for Valentines Day.  Though our venue was intimate and different than the usual for us, Season's 52 showed us hoe they handled the large number of seats we filled and had service 2nd to none. The portions were large and if you saved room, the dessert platter was visually enticing, and extremely tasty.

We look forward to seeing you all at our next gathering at The Pala Casino on March 10th. AND .. Thanks to 5 Star Tours for donating their services and vehicle to allow us FREE transportation to and from dinner/meeting.

Til next month,

Patrick Higgins
