June 11, 2018 - 6:30pm

The GCC Board of Directors would like to encourage all club members to consider attending the awards banquet which is scheduled for June 11th in Community Rooms B and C (actually one large room) in Rosborough Center at Asbury.
We're sure those who've attended past banquets would agree that it's a fun time. Guests are welcome and encouraged.
Many members (but certainly not all) bring their spouse or significant other. It's a great opportunity for them to meet your fellow club members who perhaps they've heard about and to see examples of their work.
