As so often happens at the last meeting of the year, we were few in number, but what a great time we had! We loved Facetiming with our author of the month and hearing how Agnes and her friends came to life! Thank you Carol Guthrie Heilman for "meeting" with us tonight! We so enjoyed talking to you! Thanks to Penny for hosting and as usual the food was great! Enjoy your summer and I look forward to Year 10!!! See you in August!
