The October luncheon was a resounding success. More than sixty members attended, including 10 of the 21 new members. The new members inducted into the PAWC were Lydia Bohn, Peggy Carolli, Barbara Dennis, Jill Fink, Lynn Harrison, Ellen Hawley, Sande Reinhardt, Patricia Sellner, Katheryn Touvelle and Cathy Whalen. Lynne Harrison and another new member, Barbara Venero, have already volunteered to chair the PAWC fashion show, while several other new members are eager to serve on other committees, thus verifying their commitment to the club.

The premiere speakers, Dr. Andrew Wengert and Viaura Centeno were motivating and informative as they discussed the relationship between health and fitness and gave their recommendations to achieve maximum wellness.
