Gianna was so pleased to visit our club,and loved our enthusiasm! She was not prepared for the pandemic as a District Governor but all of the support she has received makes a difference.
She was very complimentary of the club’s projects. She really appreciated the donation of bed pillows which are being stored @ the district office until needed.
