CBWC President's January letter

Happy New Year!

As many of our members have had health issues in the past year, let us wish for a healthy 2010.

Our Christmas party was a lot of fun. Thanks for all the help from so many of you. Our efforts to raise money for Heifer International were successful too.

A big “Thank You” to Terry Ducharme for the loan of her new car in the Cocoa Beach Christmas Parade. We could have wished for sunshine that day, however.

Many of you have expressed favorable comments on our food from the Christmas party. We will have the same caterer for our Fashion Show. Damian has put together an outstanding menu for us and we will be remembered for our food as well as fashion.

Much effort has already been put into making the show a really special event. The vendor who will be bringing the clothing has never done a fashion show in our area before. This is a rare opportunity to see some really unusual clothing and accessories.
We will also be drawing gemstones again. I have been told there are emeralds, rubies, sapphires (no diamonds) and some really nice choices just waiting to be drawn.

There will also be two very special baskets to be raffled at our fashion show. One theme is “gourmet” and the other is “spa”. We will also have door prizes. This is truly a “not to be missed” day!

Decorations will be provided by Julia and her crafty ladies. We really need to make an all out effort to sell tickets to this unusual show. This could help us make a name for our Club as providers of an outstanding event.

With my time as CBWC President nearing an end, I hope for success in our final fundraisers. We are already receiving applications for scholarships. It will be hard to select just a few.
