Great Crowd at VES Party

Everyone on the VES board was really happy with the turnout last night at the party.  From the looks of things, just over 200 people attended.  From speaking with people there, the prevailing attitude was that the venue was a huge improvement from last year.  The photo booth was a big hit, the food was plentiful and it was fun to see people I hadn't seen in years.  Huge thanks to the VES board (everyone pitched in and stepped up in a big way), all the sponsors and of course, everyone who attended that made the night so much fun.
