PROGRAM:  Robin Brocklesby, of Creative Coverings, a nation-wide linen rental compny, will be moderator and speaker for our exciting program about "Team-Building: Table-top Design Competition".  We'll divide into teams to design table-top decor -- including chairs, tableware, linens, and centerpieces -- according to criteria to be announced.  This is great practice generating teamwork and getting to know each other even better.  Awards will be presented to "Judge's Pick", "Popular Favorite", and "Most Under Budget".
