It seems like forever since we have been able to meet. I hope you and your families are well, around our lake and around the country. Every time I think we are closer to being able to open California I get my wishes dashed.
In spite of not being able to meet, Pat Wilkinson conducted our installation on the Clubhouse Patio July 2, 2020. We are now fully installed and ready to go.
July 16, 2020, we had the annual In/Out Event. It was a Mimosa Brunch held on Peggy Fenstermachers’ big back lawn. We introduced those members taking new positions. Kathleen Medley-Lewis will be working with April Golden on Table Decorations. Christine Wentker will be working with Janna Gunn on the Stationery Committee. Sandy DesAultes is First Vice President; Donna Cloud is Second Vice President and Pamela Archuleta is Treasurer. Charlotte Sheppard and her team decorated the back yard which really set the party spirit.
We decided that having a Planning Meeting in August was unnecessary at this time. Until we get a firm decision on Opening California we will hold off on formal planning. My biggest hope is that we will be open for our annual Home & Garden tour in May 2021. As a group we will be putting all our focus on that event to make it as special as we can.
We approved some small pieces of art work for the Clubhouse to go along with the new picture over the mantle. We are being cautious with our funds because we do not know when we will be able to fundraise again.
Keep busy both mind and body. Read, swim, golf, even call a friend just to say hello.
Miss you all lots.
