Grill Masters!

    For the eighth year in a row, Society members cooked burgers and dogs for attendees at the 2018 June Potluck. Cooking this year were member Dave Rave and former Society president Gene Teakell (l-to-r). The family-oriented potluck is a tradition for the final meeting of "our year," which runs from September through June. In 2011, we expanded that tradition (at Gene's urging) to include burgers and dogs grilled on the patio just outside of our meeting hall ... and we've continued that tradition ever since. Thank you gentlemen!  (Photo by Duncan)
