Holiday Party Fun!

The Ely Chapter’s holiday party attracted a near-capacity crowd to Sub 51, a new venue for the annual event.  Members and guests enjoyed connecting with new and familiar faces.  As is tradition, the gavel was passed to commemorate Jackie Loewe’s accomplishments as president.  The holiday party doubled as a celebration of Laurie Marston.  Laurie was named LAI’s International Member of the Year- one of the organization’s highest honors.  Laurie has served the organization at the chapter and international level in many capacities over many years.  Her heartfelt thanks to her colleagues were, “Thank you all for the recognition last night and for nominating me as Member of the Year. Jackie’s words were much appreciated and the cake was an unexpected, tasty touch. LAI is an amazing group of people and I am humbled to be recognized by people who I respect and admire.”
