I was late getting home tonight. I had to go to an officer induction banquet for a civic club that I am in. Usually we have it at a private club called The Club, but they are closed for renovations (about 50 years overdue). This year we had it at The Veranda. It was so good. I splurged and had the filet. It was so tender you could cut it with a fork. I even ate the mashed potatoes. For some reason, I don't think they are South Beach friendly. I drank water and iced tea instead of my usual red wine. Saved some calories there. I was inducted as a board of director. Last year I was treasurer. There's not that many of us, so we just rotate offices. I chose board of director since starting in October I will be the President of the National Conference of Women in Chambers of Commerce (NCWCC). It's not as big of a deal as it sounds. The president presides over a short board meeting in the spring and then over conference in the fall. The agenda is the same from year to year. Each year the president selects a charity and we sell raffle tickets to raise money. Last year we chose Fisher House, which is similar to the Ronald McDonald house except it is for families of veterans that are patients at Veteran's hospitals. We decided that Fisher House would be our charity until the war is over.
