Our annual TSAE Celebration Luncheon gives you an opportunity to catch up with your peers and enjoy a wonderful meal while we listen to Chet Garner, host of PBS' The Daytripper. We will also honor our 2016 Making a Difference Community Service Award Winner and collect toys for families in need.

Join your TSAE friends during this festive time of year!
