Tropical print shirts, shorts, dresses, sunglasses, and flip-flops were popular attire for the ProMedica Flower Hospital Annual Medical Staff Dinner March 8 in the Franciscan Center at Lourdes University. Colorful flowers by Schramm's Florist set the island theme along with a delightful dinner by Michael's Catering.
