Membership Luncheon

The Guild’s annual Membership Luncheon was held on February 8 at Dayton Country Club. The cheerful conversational buzz in the banquet room was in sharp contrast with the snowy chill outside. Guests enjoyed a festive Valentine theme while savoring a gourmet quiche entree and chocolate-coated waffle cup of creamy fresh fruit.

President Nancy Farkas and Chair Margarete Jennings welcomed everyone. Nancy presented Dayton Opera Artistic Director Tom Bankston with a check for $5,000 to fulfill the Guild’s commitment in support of the Artists-in-Residence. These talented Artists-in-Residence were on hand to entertain guests with their selection of opera and show tunes.
