Friday and Saturday nights we had all kinds of fun in the Clubhouse, ie the Presidential Suite at the Red Lion Hotel. We had a great Freezer Stenciling Class by Katie Sciarrino, giveaways from our sponsor Bolt, snacks, drinks, lots of chit-chat, arm wrestling matches (??) and tons of manicures! Oh, and some sewing even happened! Saturday morning there were Voodoo Donuts in the Clubhouse!
