2017 SWGA Annual Meeting/Luncheon

SWGA 2016 President Joyce Middleton hosted our annual meeting and luncheon at her home club Eastridge Country Club on January 13, 2017. Fifty-three ladies turned out to welcome the 2017 Officers and Reps, thank the 2016 group, congratulate the End-of-Year award winners, and socialize with each other in a way that can't be done while on the golf course.
After an outstanding lunch, the 2016 officers gave their respective reports and we were surprised and elated to end our year with a tad bit more money than we started with. Events Chairman Martha Lawhorne then presented the End-of-Year awards as follows:


100% PARTICIPATION (missing NO event)
