The event started off with a Cocktail Reception with passed hors d’oeuvres.  Members then attended the Annual Meeting to hear year-end reports followed by the election of the 2019 Board of Trustees.  A seated gourmet dinner came next, followed by a Viennese Dessert Buffet.  The 2018 Flag Officers Rob Whittemore, Paul Wash, and Tracy Schwarzschild officiated Awards Ceremony.  Evening entertainment was provided by the Alex Crain Band.
