A Message from the Co-Presidents

 

We are entering the last glorious days of summer. For those of you who have children or grandchildren heading back to school or college, it may already feel like summer is almost over. I’m trying to finish off those summer books I promised myself I would get through and starting to turn to plans I made for the fall and winter. I have to admit that I picked up an obsession for the exotic flavors of Oreos this summer. Who knew there are 25 different ones?!? Clearly Publix does not share my obsession as they may only have 5 or 6 on display. And then there are the special summer flavors: S’Mores, Latte Thins, Marshmallow Moons, Mint Chocolate Chip and newly released Maple Crème. The cookie companies are promoting “mindful snacking” to convince us health-conscious consumers that it is ok to indulge in a few cookies. They’ve convinced me!

Our hardworking Welcome Club chairs have jumped into more meaningful activity than cookie shopping, busily working out the details for this fall’s events and planning new events into 2020. I think you will be excited to see what is coming, but I won’t give away anything here! You already know about what is coming for this fall: our big original artist show for the October luncheon, the ever-popular fashion show in November featuring clothes from Dillard’s, and in December, we have a special holiday luncheon, our holiday dinner dance, and tickets to Asolo to see the ”Sound of Music” extravaganza. We always announce these early so you can get them onto your calendar and be ready to sign up when reservations open.

Ellen Taub, our president, will be back for our next luncheon and I will turn the presidency back to her. I, for one, am looking forward to her return, and I’m sure many of you are as well.
