The PSMC board learned last week of the death of Elsje Houghton on September 4 after a short illness. Elsje and her husband Raymond, have been PSMC members since 1997. They have co-hosted some lively wine tasting adventures in the past to Lake Chelan and many areas of Oregon. The Houghtons have many friends in the club and we are all saddened to learn of the family's loss. A private service is scheduled for Sept. 22.
