Summer time greetings – July

Greetings to All!

It was nice to see so many people attend the June luncheon which officially ended our year. We began our year with 178 members. We closed our year with 206 members. Newcomers donated to 10 different charities. Our donations totaled $13,950 !!! This included our $5200 donation from our Fashion Show. Thank you for making a difference this year for all our charities.

We have 15 activities for our members to enjoy. If you have a suggestion for a new group or activity, please contact Lockey Rodden.

This summer, we will have two events that have been very popular with our members. On July 25th at 10 am, we will have CHRISTMAS IN JULY at the home of Dr. Kay Solar. Bring a food item to share and a gift to exchange. On August 22nd, our ICE CREAM SOCIAL will be at the home of Kay Rorick. Bring an ice cream topping or other food item to share.

Don’t forget that dues are being collected now for our next membership year. We want everyone to be included in the Directory. Renew by August 31st. Dues remain at $35 for the year. Jane Birckhead is working on ads for the directory. If you wish to purchase an ad, or know of a business that would like to be included, please let Jane know. We want to be able to advertise our members’ and community’s businesses.

Our next Luncheon will be September 12th. Please watch your emails for the location to be announced. Bluegrass CC will be using the whole facility that day for a golf tournament.

As we look forward to our Summer Activities and new year, make plans to attend a luncheon if you have not done so, or try an activity. The two summer events are a wonderful way to meet others. I always enjoy meeting members I have not had the pleasure to meet yet! Enjoy the Summer and Stay Cool!

Many blessings, Bobette Spear
