One of the traditions that Suburban Woman’s Club holds dear is hosting their annual

dinner for family and friends in October at the American Legion Hall.  This dinner gives members an opportunity to thank their guests for the support they give the Club over the previous year.  And so it was that on Thursday, October 3rd, members invited husbands, daughters, sons-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends to show gratitude for their help and encouragement.

The dinner boasted buffet tables laden with delicious entrees made from family recipes and a dessert table which held pies and cakes and puddings, and, not to be forgotten, excellent coffee made by Hospitality Chair Diana Gallo.  Table decorations were all beautifully arranged by Gallo along with Diana Cotone and Lucy Hudson.  While everyone enjoyed this lovely dinner, local musician Mary Albani sang soft rock favorites accompanied by her sweet guitar which made the evening extra special.
