March Meeting

The event was at the Pelican Bay Club, and 138 members and guests attended. A very special and exciting program featured Ann Compton at our March meeting.  Ann received the Magellan Award in Washington, DC from the Circumnavigators’ Club last year. Ann was the first woman to cover the White house for a major television news organization.  During her career, she covered seven Presidents and ten presidential campaigns.  Ann traveled with Presidents, Vice Presidents and First Ladies to all 50 states and six continents.  She received an Emmy for her coverage as the only broadcast reporter onboard Air Force One on the day of the September 11th tragedy.
