What a wonderful evening. I would like to give a special thanks to last years board. They worked very hard to make it a fabulous year and we appreciate everything they have done. Working along side the board were amazing officers and members who made the year wonderful. It was so nice to spend an evening honoring them and realizing how much they have done for the SAA and it’s members.

Thank you for your warm welcome and support of the new board. I would like to say on behalf of our board that we are so grateful for your support and are so excited for the upcoming year.

If you are trying to stay away from sweets don’t look at the photos of the decedent chocolate deserts. They were truly phenomenal. What a great end to a fun evening.

Thank you for a great year,
