President's Message
President's Payday Reminder 3/11/2015:

Dear Members:

Due to changes in the licensing requirements for free performances of musicals, Rep Council voted to offer our annual Senior Citizen Dessert Social prior to a spring concert at the High School in order to keep it a completely free event for the senior citizens.  Below is the preliminary information.  Sue Hamer is chairing it, once again, and Jen Kroesen is assisting with the publicity.  The format will be the same, so please mark your calendar for the date below and join us to serve the senior citizens.  This has always been an extremely popular and important public relations event for our Association.  I will send a more specific request for volunteers closer to the event date.

Penn Manor High School cafeteria doors open at 5:00 p.m. and dessert will be served from 5:15 - 6:30 p.m.
