A Message from the Co-Presidents
With the holidays behind us and a bright new year ahead, we can all take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the time when life returns to normal. But that’s not to say there will be any kind of lull, with all the Welcome Club has planned for 2017! A large group of Welcome Club members and spouses head out on their cruise the end of the month, then come back in time to celebrate Valentine’s Day Feb. 12 at Tommy and Gordon Fitzsimmons’ before a big cocktail party at Architectural Salvage comes around in March…and that’s just the first three months of the year. Day trips and tours to the Sarasota Ballet, the Ringling College of Art and Design, Port Manatee and Gasparilla/Boca Grande promise us a little change of scenery and a lot of fun. And that’s in addition to the monthly activities for both women and men that are filling up our calendars, highlighted by interesting programs at our monthly luncheons and the ever-popular Fashion Show in April.
So about that deep breath and time to relax…maybe not! We encourage you to jump right in and participate in all that Welcome Club has to offer. If you’re new, just raise your hand and join a committee; it’s the very best way to really get to know each other and all our community has to offer. It’s not a lot of work – really! – especially when there are so many of us who love to pitch in and get involved. We can all look forward to a lot of good times ahead, and to friendships – old and new – that make Welcome Club a wonderful organization.
