You will feel right at home as members of the LWRWC and we are delighted to welcome such an impressive group of women as members of our LWRWC family”, President Monika concluded.
And a Surprise
Two women sitting across the table from each other smiled and said “You look familiar”. It didn’t take long for them to realize they were long lost friends.
Hazel Comerford originally from Ireland and Jan Soloman from Wales were surprised to see their friend here after more that 30 years. Jan was in Hazels wedding long ago and the two reminisced about attending a Tom Jones Concert together so many years ago.
Jan moved from Long Boat Key to Lakewood Ranch and Hazel recently moved here from Maryland.
