In 2005, Elinor prepared the club memory book, as well as a wonderful booklet that describes Quota and its many aspects to prospective members. Elinor has served on the Scholarship, Nominating, and Fashion Show committees. In each, she is a positive contributor, always friendly and courteous. We love having her as a member of our club!
