They told me we would be eating Asian Fusion. That is possibly the name given to this plate of assorted fish strips.

The people on this committee are excited thinking that more of their GWA friends will be joining them in two years. Pittsburgh will have a magical opportunity to shine.

This group is united in its passion for the art, theory, practice, and excitement of Horticulture.
I love this group and the enthusiasm behind it!
