Greetings all! I hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful weather and all the blooming flowers. I hope you will join us for our June luncheon, it promises to be lots of fun. It will be our last luncheon until September, so be sure to make your reservation and join us. As is our tradition, we will hold our Rose Ceremony, during which we recognize and honor members of the Newcomers Board of Directors, and thank them for their work. We have a few members of the Board stepping off, and we will also be introducing new members of the Board. We’ve had a committee plan the events for the day, and they have come up with some fun and creative surprises that are sure to entertain us and also help us get to know each other a little better.
You can make your reservation in the “usual” way of calling or texting or emailing Kay Rorick, or you can go to our website, make your reservation, and pay with a credit card. We frequently have members ask to pay for their luncheon via credit card, so we are excited to be able to offer that opportunity. This is only available via the website online and not “at the door”. If you wish to pay this way, be sure to visit the website the week prior to the luncheon and click on the link.
Also mark on your calendar Monday, August 21st! We will have a special Newcomers Coffee Connection on that day, starting at NOON, at Joan Blanich’s house. That is the date of the solar eclipse. We will have goodies at Joan’s house and then step out onto her back porch and lawn for the eclipse. She will also have the special viewing glasses available. Please don’t miss it, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us.
Proceeds from our Money Tree Fundraiser will help support the Grace Point Ministry. Please join in this effort by purchasing candy from Sharyn Evans, Fundraising Director, at our June Luncheon. Depending on how much candy you buy, you will receive free raffle tickets. It will support a great cause and you may win $50 in the drawing!
