PROGRAM

Today our club had a special treat a fantastic program put together by Milt and Sandra Levinson.  A Special Valentine Program.  Milt started out the program with passing around jar of candied Hearts so we could guess how many.  The big winners were Judy Bronstein and Helene Kalfuss.  They each won a prize. 

Next was the brain busting quiz on Valentine’s Day.  It was a tough one but Johnny Coladonato , Val Ogburn and Judy Bronstein came up as the winners each receiving a special prize. 

Our program was “4 Hands and the Piano”.  David Blankey and Clayton performed duets for our listening pleasure.  If that didn’t get us into the Valentine mood nothing can.  They did an excellent job of performing a selection of songs; “My Funny Valentine” written by Rogers and Hart, “I’m in the Mood for Love” and “What a Wonderful World.” 

 

If that wasn’t enough there were raffle prizes.  The winners were Barbara Stanford, Dan Keller’s guest Jody, Chris Seidel and Nandy’s guest Gaye Aguilar.
