Photos by Lynn Zahorik

Each year we celebrate by saying hello to old friends and by welcoming new ones. We raise a glass or two to recognize and honor achievements of our peers. We enjoy a nosh, buy stuff, and dance to the music. And in the end we elect new leadership and listen to speeches, but this year was bittersweet when we also said, "Thank you Carla for your selfless years of service. You will be missed."
