LKSD 2013

Wonderful time at the Lakeside, Ohio this year with a great group of gals! We had a delightful dinner on Friday night at Mon Ami in Port Clinton. Thank you ladies for the gift card. It was greatly appreciated!
We worked on many of our unfinished projects and many of us at least made a dent in our to do lists of rugs.
Enjoy the pictures I have included with this post. Heather Kline was there for relaxing massages. Already have requests for her to come back next year.
We had foot spas and delicious eats. Thank you all for contributing to our menu. Look forward to plans for next year in September for our annual event!
