Notes from October 23, 2019 Meeting

Notes from October 23, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, We had eight members present this morning, so we moved our seats together and had a very candid and fact-filled forum. One of the strengths of our long-standing group is that we maintain an open discussion format and provide each other with real information and suggestions for […]

Notes from October 9, 2019 Meeting

Notes from October 9, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, Well, it felt like 1993 all over again with a band of women around one table. We missed you all. (So did the management of the restaurant.) And it was our server Amberley’s birthday, which I did not realize until after I got back in front of […]

Notes from October 2, 2019 Meeting

Notes from October 2, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, We had two contributors to the monthly raffle – Judy Haenel and Lupe Encinas – so it was twice as much fun. Thanks to you both. We directed the funds to Brooke Schiavone for baby girl Leena’s dance scholarship. We hope that $76 picks up a little […]

Notes from September 18, 2019 Meeting

Notes from September 18, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, We were missing some folks, but we soldiered on. I hope that those of you who were MIA are okay and that we will see you soon. We had a recap of last week’s Pass It On Day at The Tulip Tree, and agreed that it had […]

Notes from August 28, 2019 Meeting

Notes from August 28, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, We had a full house and good spirits, despite the August weather and its impact on our will to survive. We agree that we are over it. Bring on the cute fall stuff. We’re done. David Serey was a guest today, and took pictures of the awarding […]

Notes from August 21, 2019 Meeting

Notes from August 21, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, We had a good meeting with some variety. The restaurant was short-handed, so the tables were left in their regular positions. We powered through the different seating arrangement, and it was fun. A few of us even tried something new for breakfast. Life on the wild side! […]

Notes from August 14, 2019 Meeting

Notes from August 14, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, Our conversation today was filled with interesting and helpful tidbits. Here are some highlights, in no particular order: Brooke Schiavone told us about the gag-worthy water bill she and Joe received, and after some discussion we realized that they were not alone in their misery. Suggestions were […]

Notes from August 7, 2019 Meeting

Notes from August 7, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, Our numbers were reduced significantly by back to school logistics and other complicating factors. So, as enthusiastic as our somewhat depleted band was today – we postponed our 50/50 raffle until next month. So, if anybody wants to sponsor September’s raffle, you have a chance to speak […]

Notes from July 31, 2019 Meeting

Notes from July 31, 2019 Meeting Dear Everybody, Despite some incredibly tangled traffic in the northwest Valley as a result of freeway closures, we had a great crowd. It was a pleasure seeing Tori Rocha, and welcoming Brooke Schiavone’s two beautiful young daughters, Stella and Leena. We are always pleased when any of our kids […]
