November Meeting

Since Archie was in Shanghai and VP Lolly was in Ohio, Duane and Jill hosted the meeting.  Everyone enjoyed hearing about Robert Farber's adventures in Xiamen as he and Javier Rodriguez sponsored by Sarasota Sister Cities and co-sponsored by GCAA and our USCPFA chapter.

October Meeting

Several of our chapter members had lunch together at Gold Dynasty Restaurant in Sarasota. 
Chapter members were encouraged to attend Dr. Bloomer's movie series at Ringling College.  Those who attended were made more aware of the happenings in Nanjing during World War II.
