Celebration of Team Anniversary

On August 2 the Striper team partied to celebrate their more than ten years of team swimming.  Hosted by Kathy Broderick, Sheila and Jeff Brown, the event was well attended, including former teammates Reta Stover, Michelle Faulkner, and Bob Fox.  The setting was the Brown's beautiful waterfront pool house in Palmer. Ray Funkhouser wrote a commemoration, which Donna gave, for our Champagne toast. Many thanks to Reta Stover who took most of the pictures.
