Celebrating 80 years
Happy fall ladies! What gorgeous weather these past several weeks!
There is much in store for this next year! Our new VP's Kathy and Patty have been scheduling a variety of excellent speakers for our meetings, and Shirley has quite the assortment of additional activities planned, including the upcoming trip to the Chicago Orchid Festival. (Details will be at our general meeting).
This Thursday September 15th, join us again at 9:30 for our general meeting, in the lower level of All Saints Lutheran Church, 630 S Quentin Rd in Palatine. Our hospitality (refreshments) is back! See the attached schedule for your month to contribute. Our presentation is Fall Container Design with Peggy Garvin.
Thanks to Judy Tammi and Nancy Kaye, we were prepared at our first general meeting in August (a month earlier than usual), with our GCI Booklet! Be sure to pick up yours at the general meeting this Thursday!
Holiday Luncheon - At this Thursday's upcoming general meeting, you have the opportunity to get the best tables for the Holiday Luncheon presentation by committing and paying for your table. Details are in the attached document. Be sure to gather your friends to have a fantastic day at Medinah!
Our Holiday Luncheon committee members have been working through out the spring and summer to create wonderful items for our Holiday Fundraiser, and have a request of our membership for an additional donation of 50 or so 5 × 7 or 6 x 8 frames - any type, with or without the glass. Please bring whatever you have that you are not using to Thursday's general meeting or drop by Shirleys before Saturday!!
