Austin Founder Lions Club
Dr. Timothy Woolsey
Introduced by Lion Peggy Brunner
Dr. Woolsey is an accomplished concert pianist who will be playing works by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. Immediately after lunch we will adjourn to the nearby Auditorium for an enhanced acoustical experience. You might want to bring along your significant other to share in this unique program the day before St. Valentine’s Day. It’s rumored that there will be chocolate covered strawberries for desert.
