Tuesday Luncheon Speaker Series - Year 2002

Tuesday luncheons provide us with a chance to socialize and to keep informed about club activities and projects. But they also provide very tasty food and the opportunity to hear talks by people from a variety of walks of life which are entertaining, uplifting, thought-provoking and enlightening.

Please email Joe Black, Speakers Chairman at if you have suggestions for speakers and topics you would like us to consider.  It is helpful if you provide the email or phone numbers of any speakers you suggest.
