  • The Three Graces
  • Foray Chair Libba Campbell named this event the "Three Graces" Foray in honor of 3 long-time NMMS members, Pat Brannen, Ruth Bronson, and Ellen Reed, in recognition of their many contributions to NMMS.
  • Libba observed, "Collectively, they have been president nine times, foray chair twelve times, newsletter editor six times and secretary four times, just to mention some of the things they've given to our organization over the years."
