This month’s letter from the President
of the Board of Directors
I had the opportunity to see and talk to many of you at the neighborhood gatherings and would like to thank the hosts: Grace Woodman and Sylvia Prince (wine & cheese for the West Side on January 18th); Su Pardo (East Side, traditional tea on January 22nd) and Anne Kreupeling and Marilyn Henderson (North Side, celebration of the Text Book Project on January 25th).
On February 2nd, Roslyn Beswick, Nidia Viquez, Cyndy Vorih and I hosted the Celebration of Anne Sobel’s Life. Many of her WCCR friends and others attended along with her family who were very moved by the experience and interested to learn about Anne’s accomplishments. The photo gallery, created by Joan Dewar, followed Anne through the years with WCCR highlighting wonderful memories. Of course, the food and visiting time afterward was terrific.
Do you remember the great Purse Sale at the March 2013 Luncheon? It was a unique mini-fundraiser. This year there is another treat. Hopefully, you are planning on attending Bling – and more – Fling on March 12th at the Aurola Holiday Inn. The menu looks delicious. We are hoping this March meeting will set the pace for our new year. Details, ticket information and directions are in the February Connection and on the website.
Tickets are now available for WCCR’s March 29th event, Dancing in the Rain. Plans are well underway for the annual fundraising event featuring delicious food, silent and live auctions, dance demonstrations and various dances (for singles, too). Bring a friend and purchase tickets for two at a reduced rate. Details are in the February Connection and on the website.
I look forward to seeing you in March!
