16th Annual VGCI Convention
Here is the group with Flagler College in the background. Beautiful day!
Some of our members immediately inside the door at Flagler College, ready for a tour of the college.
Imagine this as your lunchroom at school (Flagler College); Tiffany windows!
Need room to serve a large group their lunch? No problem; drain the pool (Lightner Museum) and use that area. No one will notice!
