A perfectly beautiful September day welcomed our first luncheon of the 2021-2022 season. Our Executive VP, Nancy Converse, greeted new and returning members, and called for a moment of silence in memory of those we have lost over the past year. Sheryl Solow presented the Thought for the Day reading a poem she wrote during the period of isolation. It was entitled "Brilliantly Resilient". Our program featured Jaime McArdle, a very talented violinist who entertained us with her stories and beautiful playing.
Joanne Burger, Community Services Committee Alternate, gave us a run down of upcoming projects. October 19, 2021 - Coats for Kids October 29, 2021 - Blood Drive November - Gift cards from grocery stores for Haymarket Regional Food Pantry to supplement fresh meat and vegetable for holiday meals.
Mary Howell, Fundraising Alternate, told us about upcoming fundraising opportunities! The Oktoberfest slated for September 22, 2021, was sold out in a week! December 12, 2021 will offer a Sweet Shoppe at Liz Anderson's home. April 28, 2022 will bring the return of the very popular RWC Golf Tournament!
