Dear Red Hat Flashes Sisters,
Ten members joined Gloria M. and me on January 24th at Sammie's Restaurant for dinner. Everyone was glad to see each other and catch up on individual news.
It didn't take long to get down to business to discuss what is happening with our club. After lots of discussion, voting, and voting again ... the following is what we came up with!
1. We miss seeing each other!
2. We will still be the Red Hat Flashes.
3. We are keeping the website.
4. We will meet six times in the year for lunch or dinner.
5. Our gatherings during the winter months will be for a luncheon.
6. Spring/Summer months-our gatherings will be a dinner at 6:00 PM. Guests are welcome for the dinners and luncheons.
7. We have scheduled the second Thursday of every other month to schedule our get-togethers.
8. Mark your Calendars now and SAVE These Dates:
March 9 Luncheon
May 11 Dinner
July 13 Dinner
Sept 14 Luncheon
Nov 9 Luncheon
9. March 9 Luncheon will be at 11:30 AM at O'Charley's in the Chapel Hill Plaza area, in front of Home Depot.
Anyone attending the March lunch should bring restaurant suggestions. Votes will be taken at that time.
10. Following the March gathering, I will re-publish the dates with the restaurants we chose so everyone can plan ahead.
So, that explains what we decided to try. Not collecting dues right now -if we get low on funds, I will let you know. Keeping things simple and we still get to see each other. Hooray!!
Hugs to all! See you on March 9th
Looking forward to seeing everyone very soon,
Hugs, Queen Elaine
