One of our attendees said:
“The decorations were beautiful.  Kathy Hubbard and her co-hosts were well-informed and delightful.  Thank you for a great night. Kudos to President Carol Deaner, and all board members.  Can’t wait for next year.  If you want to give to a dedicated proven non-profit, POAC is the one!!”
