A Message from the Co-Presidents

Remember when you first joined the Welcome Club? And why? For most of us, it was all about meeting people and making new friends. And our club has always been the perfect place to do that. Everywhere we go, across our area, people tell us they’ve heard about the Welcome Club, and what a friendly, welcoming group we are. It’s a reputation we cherish, and live up to every day.

The word is spreading faster than ever, and our membership is growing at that same pace. As that happens, it becomes more of a challenge to connect with all the new members. That’s why we’ve revived a Welcome Club tradition – the Buddy program.

Our members are lining up to be Buddies and sponsor a “newbie,” helping them get acquainted and involved with all the Welcome Club has to offer. That “get-to-know-you” can happen over a quick lunch, a cup of coffee, a phone chat or a meet-up at the new member brunch, new member happy hour, before the monthly luncheons or at the Jimmy Buffett party.

Just one more way the Welcome Club is living up to its name! If you’d like to be a Buddy, get in touch with Nancy Elswick, nelswick@aol.com or 314-607-8583.

Janet Hough and Mary Alice Czerwonka, Co-Presidents
