Well after that fabulous Fashion Show I am almost speechless this month,
don't worry I did say almost!! The team did an excellent job and I am so
grateful to them for all their hard work. Dillard's was very generous to us
with their time and door prizes and all the goodies. We really owe them a
huge "Thank You". It's the sort of partnership that makes you want to shop
in their store.
Now, on to April and "Murder at the Speakeasy." Please be advised that the
reservations are restricted to 80 people. As of this writing, I know Genevieve
is receiving checks in the mail and calls asking her to hold places. As is our
usual policy, however, your check is the only guarantee of a spot to the biggest
crime scene of the century. You may find yourself as the victim (not
much fun in that), you could be a witness, or indeed you could be the "Perp."
So all you Gangsters and Molls or perhaps a wanna-be Elliot Ness get out the
glad rags for ragtime fun. Prohibition may be the law of the land but not in
Also in April in a more decorous mood and setting we are having our April
meeting at "Tea with Thee by Victoria". Hats are optional and the staff will
choose the best hat, whether it's funny or flashy. We are going in after the
store closes hence the slightly later start time of 2:30 p.m.
Lastly, besides all the fun stuff and activities that are whirling around us,
remember that in April we are having a renewal drive, although your renewal
is due May 1st with a grace period until the end of May. The reason for this
is that the Treasurer has to prepare a budget for 2014/15 by June 1st for the
new board and that is all based on the renewal monies. In previous years,
we have received renewals in June which is past the cutoff date. In an effort
to streamline this process, Alyson Mihealsick, our 3rd VP has come up with
incentives and a more efficient way for us all to renew in a timely fashion. I
will leave Alyson to fill in the details in her piece which is in this edition. Now
that the sun is out I am sure we are all ready to throw off the winter blues
and get out and have some fun.
