kitty lichtyPRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Summer’s end used to mean certain clichés: gearing up after time away, kids going back to school, and cooler weather. Not true now. We e-mail and post photos on vacation in China. Kids take online credit classes. And who knows what season it is, especially in Texas!

But, it’s great to be back with our Women’s Club friends and activities. Our camaraderie is our consistency. September provided an exhilarating start. Mary Gordon Spence entertained and inspired a large number of members, and many stayed for lunch and the opportunity to know others better. New members were identified by nametags and balloons at their tables.

Thanks to Carole Dann, Karen Morter and their team, the “Sunset Shindig” dinner dance was a boot-scootin’, crowd-pleasing good time. Suzie Leggio and Vickie Taylor have put a new spin on the October 27 “Runway 14” Fashion Show. And the Special Interest Groups have announced enticing activities to get us in the groove.

Your Board and SIG Chairs thank you for your membership and involvement. Please contact me with your questions or concerns. Board members and committee chairs' contact information can be found here for members’ use.

Kitty Lichty, President








sharon gilmorePROGRAMS

Our first meeting in September was a great introduction to the programs we have ahead!
   
Our next program will be in November. Meanwhile, see you at the Fashion Show in October.

Here's a preview of what is in store for us in November --

jim gentilJim Gentil was honored by the Texas legislature with a resolution recognizing him as Mr. Positive. His passion is in showing others the successes that can be achieved through cultivating a positive attitude. 

He has worked as a teacher here and abroad in Germany and Korea. While in Korea he was employed by Dow Chemical in the position of Human Resources Manager. He later became Dow's Public Relations Manager and Corporate TV News Anchor. During the final portion of his 25 years with Dow he gained the position of Lobbyist and Manager of State Government Relations. In addition to his many success guidebooks, he publishes two newsletters reaching subscribers in 50 states and 30 countries around the world.

A master magician, Jim has entertained executives of the Fortune 500 companies around the world and performed at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. The real magic lies in his message of the power of positive living, making the world a more positive place, one audience member at a time.

Sharon Gilmore, 1st Vice President

Womens Club members and their partners donned their cowboy hats and boots for a Sunset Shindig on Sept. 28, at the Pavillion at Highlands Village in Rough Hollow.

About 100 participants enjoyed a barbecue buffet catered by Rudy’s. Afterward, the group two-stepped and line-danced to the sounds of the band, “Where’s Renée? featuring Bahama Billy.” Adding to the fun, Heather Billetter taught the group new line-dance routines.

Two weeks prior to the Fashion Show, any remaining reservations will be made available to guests.

In compliance with this new policy, no member/eligible family member reservation check will be accepted prior to September 1, and based on availability, no non-member check will be accepted prior to October 13. Our final attendee numbers must be provided to the resort on Wednesday, October 22.
