President's Message Cocoa Beach Woman's Club Nov 2009
The time is passing so quickly. We will be electing a nominating committee at our next general meeting on November 5th. Please let me know if you are interested in serving on the committee. Committee members should have been a CBWC member for at least one year and know most of our members.
We have had some health problems among our members lately. I want to send our hopes and prayers for better days to Ginny Pruitt, Pauline Contakos, Anne Herrington, Barb Holden, Jean Carey & Lucy Tolsen. It is approaching our busiest time of year and we have high hopes for success!
By the time you receive your newsletter, our gold party will have been held. Many people have been working to make it a big event and I especially want to thank Julia George for all of her hard work and our jewelry "genius" Don Traver, http://www.theprivatejeweler.com/intro.asp for his many efforts on our behalf.
Also, thank you to Cocoa Beach High School's Maureen Baldino and the musical groups who provided the entertainment for us. Extra thanks go to everyone who brought food and helped with tickets and decorations. Our yearbooks have been printed and will be available at the November meeting.
Thank yous go to Irene Harris, Claudia Davis, Julia George and Barb Holden helping to put our new book together. Extra thanks to Irene who is no longer able to attend our meetings and to Julia who found some great looking new yearbook covers for us on the internet. You will see the new covers at our next general meeting.
Our Vendor Fair last year was a terrific lead into the holiday season and I know this year will be really fun, too. Julia and her art group ladies have been hard at work for some time. I can't wait to see what gift ideas we will have to choose from!
Save January 23rd for a special treat! We have fashions from Sarasota provided by a vendor from the state convention. She is very popular at the Convention and we are really lucky to get her. We also have the former Head Chef from the Rockledge Country Club catering our lunch. He is suggesting some really outstanding buffet items.
For decorations we will have "Artful Bras". The idea is to support "Breast Cancer Awareness" and is a state project and contest.
By the time you read this, five of us will have attended the Annual District 6 meeting and will have heard what other clubs are doing as fundraisers this year. It should be informative and may give us ideas for next year. Members attending are Sheryle Schaefer, Jean Carey, Barb Holden, Julia George and Pam Kendrick.
A Happy Halloween to you all!
