I hope you’re all finding a way to stay cool. One thing’s for sure…Fall is just around the corner and that should bring a smile to everyone’s face! Speaking of smiles: It was so nice to see a lot of you at ‘Girl’s Night Out’ in August. Many thanks to Margie MacKenzie for putting it all together. She did a wonderful job, and everyone had a great time.
We have a lot coming-up in the next few months, so get your calendars out and add some reminders. First, remember that there’s no monthly luncheon in September…we’ll meet again on Friday, October 11th. Our guest speaker that day will be Claytee White, Director of the Oral History Research Center at UNLV Libraries. She and her colleagues record eye-witness accounts from members of the Las Vegas community to document the history of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. These oral histories present, in a very immediate and engaging way, a piece of history through the actual voices of those who were there.
Everyone is excited about our Halloween Social coming up on Saturday, October 26th. Tickets are NOW ON SALE! Tickets are $30 and will be available for purchase at our October luncheon. Since space is limited, if you want to make sure you get a ticket, contact JoAnne DiGerolami at (702) 655-4534 now. Let her know who you’d like to sit with and we’ll work to accommodate you. It’s going to be an exciting night filled with a costume contest, music, dancing, raffles and a delicious dinner. We’ll be taking posed pictures that will be available for purchase ($3 each) before the evening is over, and even though costumes are optional, but wouldn’t it be fun if everyone participated! Remember, EVERYONE is welcome, so invite your friends to share in the fun.
Some of the other upcoming events include our annual auction at the November luncheon. We’re conducting it a little differently this year so that it won’t run as long. One difference will be an “open shopping period” during our social hour. Come and find the perfect holiday gift, or maybe just something that you’ve been wanting or needing in your life!
November also brings our annual Gift Basket and Bake Sale on Saturday, November 23rd. Some of you may not know that preparations for this GIANT sale begin almost a year in advance, and as always, it promises to be an amazing event.
Saturday, December 7th is the yearly Craft Fair featuring all hand-made crafts and gifts. Vendors from all over the Vegas Valley look forward to displaying their products at Los Prados, and our Craft Fair chairwomen have made a few changes which promise to enhance this popular event!
Ladies, as you can see, we have lots of fun and exciting things coming up! Have a good rest of the summer and we’ll see you next in October. In the meantime, plan to have some laughs with friends by getting your tickets for the Halloween Social NOW!
As always, say a little prayer for our ladies dealing with illness or loss,
