A couple of our members traveled on March 25th to Florida’s East Coast to participate in the Mathews-Falman Chapter show on Merritt Island. JEH member Valerie Costa was the big winner, but the highlight of the day was meeting new people from the host chapter and reconnecting with other AHS members who were at the show.
