The GFFN 33rd ANNUAL POETRY LUNCHEON
The 33rd Annual Poetry Contest was an outstanding success. Chris Grindler transformed the foyer of River Bend Country Club into a spring time wonderland that set the tone for a special time for all 66 guests. The young poets' families and teachers thanked us for sponsoring the opportunity to showcase the student's personal expressions. The local Connection newspaper wrote a wonderful article about the event "Budding Bards At Great Falls Elementary. Ladies' club awards Poetry winners, throws luncheon".
Please Join us next year.
