Dinner at Monir's

Tonight Monir, our fabulous Regional Director, treated the board, several past regional directors and visiting FGI Regional Directors from the East Coast and the West Coat to a traditional Persian dinner... Belly dancer included!! She opened up her amazing home and did all the cooking herself - you should have seen the spread. I haven't eaten so well in I don't know how long!!

Thank you Monir for your hospitality!

Margaret Hayes, the FGI president of ALL of FGI was there too - she is visiting from NY for the dinner and the conference tomorrow downtown. She was a delight to meet and had lots of great information for those of who who are newer to the group.

Here are a few pictures from the evening. (My pictures begin when the belly dancer arrived... I missed photos of dinner and all the networking beforehand.)

Tomorrow is the FGI conference; info will be posted - check back later!
