Founders’ Day Luncheon was held at Red Rocks Café on October 10th. We had a wonderful time and the food as excellent as always, especially that yummy chocolate cake. We did take some time to acknowledge our members celebrating anniversaries this year. This includes: Laura Kovacs – Rhode Island 10 years, Lynn Young – Lander & Trish Martin - Northern Illinois 25 years as well as Mary Kearns -Michigan State 65 years. Congratulations!
Michelle Figueras hosted a jewelry party to benefit the Alpha Phi Foundation and CMC Heart of a Woman. There was a great turnout & we raised $134.70 before heading out on the town.

With the Holiday’s coming up things will get a little quiet but keep an eye out for the evite to the Holiday party on December 12th at Mary Evans’ home.
It’s time for Autobell car wash passes again! They make great stocking stuffers and teacher gifts. Each pass is good for a full service wash and is $13.95. Tickets can be purchased at the holiday party or by contacting Karen Miller by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 704-224-8827. This is a great fundraiser for our convention/regional conference fund because we earn $6.97 per ticket sold!
As a note our January event was scheduled to be held at Frankie’s Italian Grill in Dilworth. Due to Frankie’s closing we had to change the location of the event and it will be held at Mama Ricotta’s instead. The evite will be sent out in December.
We’ve also had some changes to our Ivy Circle calendar. Look at the current Calendar on-line for updates.
