The December 3 meting at Dupree’s was a good one. Â We learned Eddie Williams, an original member of the club dating back to 1950, will be honored by Governor Haley tonight at the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. Â Eddie started the company responsible for providing the tree each year and other items making the event so special.
Carrie Deaton led today’s meeting and did a fantastic job. Â Chris Burnette, current President, could not attend due to work obligations and Carrie masterfully played host. Â Tim Goldman also spoke to the club and assisted Carrie.
Christina Bickley was the guest speaker. Â She represents the American Diabetes Association and did a great job explaining why the Association is so vital in Columbia and around the country. Â Data interspersed with stories filled the time and again, it was very effective. Â Please support the American Diabetes Association if at all possible.
