Our annual May Banquet will be held at the Boulder View Restaurant on May 20th at 6pm. DEADLINE for Reservations – May 15th to Mary M.  This dinner is in lieu of our regular meeting at the church. The banquet committee, Stacy M., Joan B., Pam B., Paulette P.,  Kris M. and Lisa E.,  chose Black and Red as this year’s theme. The dinner is $30 per person (pre-paid) which includes the following: Appetizer – Cheese/Crackers & Veggie Dip, Caesar Salad with Bread & Rolls, Entrees – Chicken Parmesan, Salmon, and Roast Beef, Veggie, Potato and Dessert. Coffee, tea, and iced tea are included but it’s cash bar for alcoholic or non alcoholic drinks. You won’t want to miss this event! If you were there last year, you will remember that this committee knows how to throw a party with lots of fun and surprises.  

It was voted that our officers for the 2019 – 2020 club year will remain the same as this past year. (listed above) They will be reinstalled by Pat M. at our May Banquet. We owe them a debt of gratitude for serving our club this past year and stepping up for another term. One way to show our support is to fill in all the committees before the new yearbook goes to press. There are still 3 people needed for Nominating Committee, 1 open space for July Refreshments and 2 open spaces for August Refreshments. Call Pam and make her day by filling these final positions.

Membership – Greta W. will be initiating the following new members at our May Banquet – Heidi C., Carrie S., Sharon G., Eileen D., Barbara Q. and Jennifer W. Welcome to our most recent member, Jennifer W., who join our club at our April Meeting.

A huge thank you to Fern S. for organizing Project Healing Waters for our Veterans. It will be held May 1st at Indian Mt. Rod and Gun Club. Also, thank you to those who signed to donate food and help cook and serve that day. The Veterans love this day of relaxing and catching a fish or two. It’s the least we can do to thank them for their service!!

Dottie S. will be representing our club at the GFWC Pennsylvania Federation of Women’s Club’s Convention in May. She will present our club’s contribution of $30 that was collected at our April Meeting for the Service Dogs. Thanks to all who donated.

The spring blooms of daffodils and tulips are a welcome sight at our beautification project, the flower gardens across from Chestnuthill Diner in Brodheadsville. The next to bloom will be the Iris and Lilies sometime in May. Mulching and planting the annuals will also take place in May. Watch for an email as to the date and time. We can always use some extra hands.
