Greetings scribes, a well attended meeting with a couple of guests. We welcomed June Megennis and her husband Charles Haddad. June is writing her memoires and a very interesting life she has had travelling all over the world in charge of national orchestras working with some very famous artists.
Charles is an ex professional volley ball player and also wrote a book about his life which sold 20,000 copies. We look forward to more interesting stories from them in the future.
