FROM THE PRESIDENT
Our lunch meetings and speakers continue their popularity!! We all enjoyed a vivacious discussion with an engaging panel of journalists, chosen for their fair and even reporting! Pat Peterson demonstrated equal talent as our Emcee! Thank you all for submitting terrific questions, and for your participation. The food and service at the Upper West are my personal favorite, they even offer Happy Hour pricing for their bar service during lunch!
This month, our last meeting before our summer break, will be held at our regular destination – Amici’s off San Vicente. Another accomplished guest speaker, he has been making the rounds at many of our Federated Chapters around So Cal…please join us!
1212 remains our destination for our evening mixers, we have now been enjoying their food and service for a full year!!! Management remains welcoming and accommodating – and the food and beverages are quite a bargain for their chic recipes!! As a reminder we do not meet over the summer for our lunches, but will continue to offer our happy hour mixers at 1212 on the Santa Monica Promenade!
Our board members, along with the Pellegrini family hosted this year’s New Member Reception. The food prepared and lovely set up at the Pellegrini Estate were impressive! Thank you to our Membership Team lead by Sheri Sharpe, Gail Flyers, and Cathy Knight for demonstrating our club’s warm welcome, and vitality!! Thank you to all our new members over this past year for joining in the fun!
A shout out to Kari Czar and her tireless Community Leadership, thank you for representing our Conservative Group at the annual Memorial Day Event, honoring our brave service men and women!!
Our summer projects include two big objectives: we have been offered a “permanent” headquarters and will be furnishing it to suit our needs; and we have a dedicated committee planning a September PAC Fund Raising event with aggressive goals – Pat Peterson, Kari Czar, Iris Jue, Linda Grossman, Donna Block, Nancy Grant and Stephani Pellegrini. Stay tuned, as you’ll be invited to celebrate in the progress for these activities!!
Hope you all enjoyed a delightful Mother’s Day, and celebrated Memorial Day with GUSTO!!
