SPECIAL POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT
Over the years, Women’s Club Fashion Show has become one of our
members’ favorite events. As our membership has grown, so has the
demand for reservations. To give our valued members first priority for
Fashion Show reservations, the Board has approved new guidelines that
begin in 2014:
“Women’s Club members,
plus their immediate family (grandmothers, mothers, mothers-in-law,
sisters, sisters-in-law, daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters),
will be given first opportunity to make reservations. Two weeks prior
to the Fashion Show, any remaining reservations will be made available
to guests. No reservations will be accepted prior to September 1st of
the current year, and all must include the total payment, as well as
the names of all attendees for the requested reservation.”
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,
We greatly appreciate our members’ support and hope this new policy
allows even more of you to enjoy the annual Fashion Show.
