Yikes! The time really got away from me last month so I’m really late with my president’s letter. April was a very busy month with our annual Rummage Sale on the 29th, but more on that later. I hope that this letter finds you all well and looking forward to a GREAT summer!
Looking back, our April luncheon and Fashion Show was a big success! Patti Vitz, the owner of Sunflower Fashions in Pahrump, did a great job on the fashion show! Additionally, she brought a lot of her merchandise to Los Prados so we all could shop in the little boutique we set up in the Cypress Room. A big “thank you” to all the ladies that modeled for us ... you all looked beautiful!
If you’re looking for a fun day with your friends, consider driving “over the hump to Pahrump” and shop at Patti’s store. We traveled there early in April to get fitted for the fashion show and made it a day by having a delicious lunch at the Winery! If you remember, we were having some WILD weather here in Southern Nevada at that time, and our trip back to Las Vegas was truly an adventure! ... I think we encountered every kind of precipitation you can imagine!
Before the fashion show began, Susan Dubin from the Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Center spoke to us. She gave us a brief summary of their organization’s mission and facilities here in Las Vegas. The Center will be the recipient of the funds previously collected for the Marilyn Project.
Well ladies, since I’m so late with my letter, I can tell you that our Rummage Sale was a big success! We had a nice crowd and LOTS of stuff to sell. A million thank you-s to all the ladies who volunteered their help. Additionally, I want to thank all the gentlemen who volunteered their muscles and time ... we couldn’t have done it without them! God Bless you ALL for working so hard and making the Rummage Sale the success that it was.
Here we are in May already, so be sure you get your reservation in for the May Luncheon. Our program features magician Michael Aslan coming to entertain us. Not only is he a magician, but he has also written some children’s books and has been a teacher of the art of magic. I understand he has produced a quality line of magic products called “Magic for the Professional”. Make your reservation early ... it’s going to be a great show!
Remember to get your tickets for the “Fabulous 50’s Bash” social coming up on May 20th. We have extended the cutoff date for the purchase of tickets to May 12th, the day of the luncheon. You can get your tickets by calling Kimberly Holden at (425) 408-2878 or JoAnne Digerolami at home (702) 655-4534 or cell (702) 755-4321. This is the first social we’ve had in four years, and we sure hope you’ll join us in the fun! It takes lots of planning and work to put these events on, and we hope you will come and enjoy!
Goodbye for now, and we’ll see you in a couple weeks. Take care, stay safe, and pray for all our friends here in Los Prados, many of whom are going through hard times. God Bless you all.
