gathered on the deck of our building at Flotilla to enjoy a
Wine & Cheese Tasting,
followed by a dinner of Spaghetti Bolognese overlooking scenic Lake
Murray. In addition to the fabulous dinner and dessert, LMPS Photographer
Dr. Joe snapped photos of the couples enjoying our Italian fest.
If you were unable
to make this event, please consider helping LMPS reach our goal to repair
the ramp. $1,550 was raised at our Wine & Dine event, bringing our current
total to $4,179 toward the $13,500 project cost.
In addition to
members' personal use, the ramp is utilized for the LMPS Thornwell
Children's Day community outreach event, as well as providing accessibility
for Lake Murray Search, Rescue and Recovery efforts by emergency responders
-- all of which are important reasons for LMPS to make this fund-raising
effort a success!
