MSC Social Divas

There is so much going on that MSC has not one, not two but THREE Social Managers to plan entertaining events for us all to enjoy in 2017. These awesome ladies are (L to R above) Julie Ferneyhough, Claire Jakes and Sara Townsend, (collectively known as the “Marconi Social Divas”). Right now they are planning a packed calendar and are open to any suggestions you may have.
