SFNA General Meeting
To start 2013 with a healthy kickoff, the February 12th meeting of the SFNA will combine a light supper with a guest speaker. Vanessa Driscoll, the marketing director for the new Whole Foods near us, will talk about Whole Foods standards and suppliers, as well as a variety of nutritional programs they offer. We are hoping for hand-outs and samples, too, though that is more hope than promise at this point. We have lots of great grocery stores close to our neighborhood. Come find out more about our newest addition.

Dinner consisting of homemade soup, bread, dessert and beverage; and socializing will start at 6pm. We will have a short business meeting from 6:30-6:45. Vanessa will speak from 6:45-7:15. Then we will complete any additional business between 7:15 and 8pm. We encourage families with young children to come, join us for dinner, and stay as long as they can. Mark Hering will have a movie set up for the kids in a room close to the meeting hall.

Please contact Valerie Marcil at 803 738-0682, 803 331-1138 or email to RSVP and to coordinate food and beverages.!

If you have an issue you would like discussed at the meeting, please contact Ed Tilden at 803 212-8605 or email

Bring yourself, your family, your neighbors, and any concerns you may have to the meeting!
