Big Thanks to Pat (Ingrasci) Nielsen and Joe Ingrasci for sponsoring lunch today.

The main course consisted of Chicken Salad, Ham Salad, & Egg Salad Croissants, along with a 3 Bean Salad, Pickles and Chips - DELICIOUS !!!

The question arose “Do real men eat Quiche”? & “Do real men eat Croissants”? To be in full character it was discovered that a number of the guys "Shaved their legs for the Luncheon Today" Their names are withheld to protect their pride !!!
