Members Share Good Food and Friendship
This week SAIL Members joined together for a delightful evening at member Janice Gary’s home—thank you, Janice!

Janice and Karen Peterson, member group leaders, hosted a pizza potluck dinner so members could take in Janice’s 15 flower gardens, and enjoy fellowship, good food, and interesting conversations (we ev
en found out one member was actually a friend of Audrey Hepburn!) 


Janice did a super job sharing tips and information about her recent hip surgery and recovery experiences and how friends, neighbors, and others including SAIL members and staff helped her out.
