Highlight of the November 13 luncheon meeting of the Largo Woman's Club was a performance by the Grandmother Rockettes dance troupe. Hostesses for the luncheon were Lois Natalino, Roni Helwig, Jean Collins, Leona McFadden and Audrey Robinson ... The "Gadabouts" travelled to Sarasota recently. While there, they dined at the Crab Trap, visited the Mote Marine Aquarium and shopped on St. Armand's Circle ...
