All Shades of Red was theme for Women’s Club lunch


Ann Madigan

Reds from Chinese red to fire engine red and shades between, greeted guests at the February Women’s Club lunch. Apparel was colorful, and tables eye-catching in red accent covers. A heads up for last minute activities, including charity donations, was called preceding the business meeting.

The first fundraising project was introduced—a Home and Garden show, Saturday, June 2, from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Special Projects announced an April 26 day trip to Circus City and Elephant Sanctuary, Endangered Ark Foundation, in Hugo, Oklahoma. More information and volunteer opportunities are coming. Hospitality—greeters, table decorations were acknowledged.

Following the meeting, was a roasted chicken and cherry cobbler lunch.

Friends of the Family donations totaled $724, in addition to a donation of handmade blankets, shawls and scarfs. The Women’s Club members continue to be very generous to our monthly charities.

Joyce Frey introduced the program—swingin’, croonin’, singin’ Brad Ackland. In a tuxedo, and holding a hand mic, Brad sauntered through the room singing songs in the style of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. Asking for song requests, he accessed his music library, and shared the available songs. Guests were delighted with his personable interactive style. He charmed, cajoled, and allowed us to reminisce memories of songs first heard.

The April program is a Soft Surroundings Style Show, and Women’s Club volunteers will act as models. Also, the April program will feature tips on packing for a cruise.
