47: Ladies; It has been an honor and a privilege for us to work with all of you this year. We have enjoyed being a part of OSC and seeing all the amazing things you have accomplished. The monthly luncheons were fantastic, the fundraisers successful, all of the special activities were so much fun and the friendships we've made will last forever. A club is not successful because of just a few people, it takes a whole group of willing volunteers to make things work. We thank you for all your hard work, dedication and all you do for the OSC, the Ft Meade community, and for our families and service members. You are all wonderful! God Bless you All. Debbie and Audrey
