Keynote speaker for the annual Council 8 luncheon in Indianapolis was Leslie S. Dunn, J.D., Indiana State Director of GAL/CASA. She has worked for the Indiana Supreme Court for 16 years. Her analogy comparing the ordeal of an abused/neglected child dealing with the court system to that of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz was enlightening.

The Woodstock Club of Indianapolis was the chosen venue for this year's Council 8 luncheon, and in spite of roads surrounding the location being closed off for the Monumental Marathon, members of all four chapters of Council 8 enjoyed a delicious luncheon and an entertaining speaker.
