SPPA News – April 2016

Hello SPPA Members,

A lot has been going on with SPPA!  We had a wonderful turnout and a terrific time at our Annual Firstie Event, hosted by Henry and Chaw Ye Chang, on Sunday, April 10.  Seven SPPA families were honored with heartfelt Mid letters and gifts from the Club – and there was hardly a dry eye in the room! Congratulations to all who have graduating Firsties – it has been quite a ride!

Now on to upcoming events:

Dine Arounds continue – there is one this week, Thursday April 22, in fact at the Wegmans in King of Prussia at 6:30PM – We look forward to seeing you there!
