We all know Ron's sense of humor so it is only fitting that we show him our love by "roasting" him!  To make this memorable for him we need your help. We know that there are many memorable stories from over the years that can be shared so please pull those from your memory banks.  If you would like to speak to honor him at the meeting or if you do not personally want to speak but want to share some stories please contact Charlene Miller at or call at 610-704-7251.  We need everyone's help to make this a great time for Ron.
