A Message from the Co-Presidents


The Welcome Club hopes you and your families and friends did not experience any harm or damage to your homes during Hurricane Irma. We look forward to cooler, dryer weather, and wonderful times ahead.

The slate of 2018 Executive Committee members (president, first vice president/co-president, second vice president/membership, secretary, treasurer and program directors) will be announced at the October monthly luncheon, and a vote will be taken of all Welcome Club members present. The full board consists of the Executive Committee and the committee chairmen. It meets the second Friday of each month at a member’s home. A new member brunch is held after the board meeting three or four times a year.

The Welcome Club’s many committees have been very involved this summer planning fall and winter events. Every member is encouraged to join a committee to plan an activity or event. We are stronger when we all work together!

October is shaping up to be a busy month. On Oct. 12, the Welcome Club will have its annual cocktail party on Lido Beach. On Oct. 16, there will be a day trip to Selby Gardens for a docent-led tour of the beautiful greenhouses and gardens. There’s more about these events in this newsletter. The Oct. 29 Halloween party at Trish and Bob Newman’s is now full, but there is a waiting list.

Small special interest groups continue to meet! Please check the page that lists the small groups and their chairmen. And be sure to visit the Welcome Club website often, at http://www.welcomeclubsarasota.com/. It has great information and current pictures of our activities.

The Welcome Club is so fortunate to have caring, hard-working board and committee members who plan outstanding events for our members! Thank you!

Janet Hough and Mary Alice Czerwonka
