It’s hard to believe that half the year is gone already ... (I guess it’s true that time flies when you’re having fun ;) Speaking of good times: Now is a great time to thank Margie MacKenzie for recommending Randy McGuire for our June program, as well as Leslie Fox-Priest for making all the arrangements for him to perform! Everyone had a good time and it was great to see some of our ladies literally “dancing in the aisles”! As you probably know, Randy is related to the famous McGuire Sisters and it’s clear that he’s following in their footsteps. He’s been performing for over 40 years and currently appears at The Hideaway here in Las Vegas. If you’d like to see him again, call The Hideaway Bar and Grill for the nights he performs.
Our July program promises to be just as exciting as we welcome travel-specialist, Sara Raney! (You may remember that Sara was to have been our February speaker, but the sudden and tragic death of her adult son required her to reschedule.) This promises to be a very special program, as Sara has traveled to over 100 countries and all 7 continents. She’s a featured travel-speaker aboard cruise ships, has written bestselling books on the subject, and is recognized as a luxury travel concierge! BE SURE to get your reservations in early as this will be a VERY popular program. Remember: Make your reservation before Tuesday, July 9th, no later than 12:00 noon. (Thanks, Ladies!)
OK, I have to put this small note in about our last meeting: I want to apologize to the members who suggested that we recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” in honor of Flag Day. I agreed that it was a GREAT idea and had the flag brought into the room in preparation. Once I got to the podium, however, I completely forgot to do it! I am truly sorry and promise that we will honor Independence Day at the July meeting by reciting the Pledge. Thank you, Ladies, for your suggestions and input!
Many of you know that several members of our LPWC Board met with three members of the HOA Board along with Lori (the General Manager) and Anthony (the Food and Beverage Manager). The meeting was held because of some changes that had been suggested which could have negatively impacted our Club. We met for over an hour and a half and discussed topics ranging from the deadline to make luncheon reservations, to whether or not the Women’s Club would pay a “room fee” for use of the Clubhouse facilities. After much discussion, it was agreed that Los Prados WOULD NOT charge us for the use of the room(s), and our luncheon reservation count would be in by noon on the Tuesday before the luncheon.
This being said, I want to impress upon you the importance of maintaining our luncheon counts each month. In order for the clubhouse to “break-even” and for our luncheon costs to remain as-is, we must maintain an 11-month average of 115 members per meeting. (This number was our average attendance from last year.) Therefore, we’re asking you to please come to the luncheons as often as you can, and for those on the permanent list, to cancel your reservation when you can’t. This will help us provide accurate counts to the clubhouse and help them economically plan and prepare for our luncheons.
We’re drawing near to our “Girl’s Night Out” (August 9th, 5:00 pm) and we’d like your ideas on what you’d like to see added to our program. If you have any suggestions for fun activities, please call Margie MacKenzie at (702) 845-3378 or JoAnne DiGerolami at (702) 655-4534. We’d love to get your input!
Try to stay cool and remember to call-in with suggestions for “Girl’s Night Out”. Thanks for your continuing support...looking forward to seeing you at our July Luncheon (remember, get your reservations in early)!
Hugs to all,
