Celebrating 40 Years of Fun and Friendship. PHNC came “Roaring” back in April, with a true 20’s Party and all that Jazz! The Ladies of PHNC donned their best red dresses and their 20’s Flapper attire, to make this a great celebration. PHNC, founded in 1981, was forced to delay the celebration due to the recent pandemic. However, a record number of ladies attended April’s celebration. There were Balloons, champagne centerpieces, treasure boxes of sweets and accompanied by the mellow sounds of the Roger Harrison Jazz Duo.
