FAMA’s 10 year Anniverary Party

How the years fly…. Lisa writes:

What a great day we had yesterday to celebrate 10 years of F.a.m.a. Thanks to all involved , Liz and Gerald for allowing us into their lovely home. Gerry and the entertainment team, but most of all Pat and Roly as without their dedication and vision Fama wouldn’t be what it is today. Now, why couldn’t I say this yesterday without blubbing!


Well said Lisa!!
