The first New Member Coffee of 2017 was held Wednesday, January 18, in Gayle Coe’s home. The members who joined since October were invited, and 25 ladies attended the morning event. The new members were a diverse group of residents who have moved to Robson Ranch from New York City, New Mexico, Illinois, Nebraska, California and other cities in Texas. Neighbors from new neighborhoods met other new neighbors and residents who have lived at Robson Ranch and recently joined the Women’s Club to share their mutual interests. Plans were made to get to know each other better.
The morning program was kicked off with Joyce Ambre, membership, welcoming the women and introducing Sharon Foy, president. In turn Sharon expressed how excited she was to meet all the new members and shared upcoming Women’s Club events. She also invited the new members to “take the plunge” and volunteer for the various Women’s Club activities and make new friends in the process.
Jan Utzman, community relations, introduced herself and welcomed the new members. She also shared her vision of meeting people from other Women’s Club organizations from surrounding communities and networking with them to learn more about other activities and programs that can enrich our own organization.
Laurie Wiginton, ways and means, encouraged the new members to sign up and take part in the two fundraising events this year and detailed the fundraising opportunities she is currently exploring.
Great conversation and good coffee shared with new acquaintances complemented the morning activities. Watch for details about the next New Member Coffee. For more information about membership, please contact Joyce Ambre at 262-3425 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
