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. 
        (11:30 AM)
    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-O'Charley's at Chapel Hill (11:30 AM)
                    May 11             Dinner - Market Street Grill and Pub (6:00 PM)
                    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!
