A most pleasant summer evening was spent at the West Newbury home of incoming president Joe Murphy on June 21, 2016, as we inducted a new member, installed a new slate of officers and presented a college scholarship.

President Claudette Beerman inducted her fiancé, Chris Allen, as our newest member – our twentieth.

 Past N.E. District President Tony “The Bear” Fusco officiated at the installation of officers and board members. He then distributed president’s pins from his 2000-01 administrative year, plus blue ribbon pins.
