Message from President Nat Calamis

I wanted to report that our annual holiday luncheon was a great success. The members in attendance were joined by Judge Mott, Judge Shuker, Judge Cordero and Judge Zeldon. The discussion was lively and the event was well-attended. We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s lunch. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all!
