Two hundred friends of CLASP gathered at the beautiful home of Gerald and Barbara Friedman on Sunday afternoon, November 8 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of CLASP. It was a lovely fall afternoon of conversation and delicious food, prepared by Robin Leonard and Karen Rosenthal, with the help of many volunteers, including members of the CHS Interact Club. Music by the Citrus Jazz Combo added to the ambiance and celebration.
