President’s Letter

Welcome the New Year!  It has been just beautiful weather.  I cannot believe it is winter.  Hope you are all sticking to your New Year’s resolutions.  Oh well, there is always next year!
 
Our January luncheon at Tournament Player Club was fantastic, the food was great and the beautiful view was an added bonus.  We had a great time with our scarf contest.   Thank you Barri Boren for organizing it.  There were some very unusual scarves and we collected quite a few to donate to the Women’s Assistance League.
 
February 9th luncheon will be held at Le Chene.  Our hostesses have a great menu planned.  Please call and reserve a seat.
 
We are looking forward to our March luncheon at Valencia Country Club that will include special entertainment from Jimmy Carnelli. Mr. Carnelli is a renowned musician and vocalist known worldwide.

Members will have the luncheon and entertainment for $21.00.  Guests and non-members can reserve a seat for $25.00 which must be paid in advance.
 
We are looking for new board members.  Anyone interested in any of the many positions may contact Carol Maul 661 702 1877.

A SURE BET !!

The Party Bus is going to Santa Anita Racetrack on
Thursday, February 2, 2012.

If you have signed up to join us, here is information you need!

Our coach will be waiting in the parking lot of the 24-hour Wal-Mart on Carl Boyer Drive.   Please park on the far right (grocery side) towards the back.  We will be boarding at 9:15 AM sharp by yet another original “vagabonds scheme”.  We will return by approximately 7:30 PM.

In addition to Transportation, the trip includes:
A Tram tour of the paddocks.
Seats in the clubhouse.
A handicapper to go over the day’s races.
A delicious buffet lunch in the clubhouse.
A full day at the track—and possibly some winners.

You can just watch the magnificent horses run, enjoy the atmosphere, and not bet at all.  OR, you can join a pool and bet with friends. OR, bet your own bucks!    It is all up to you!

If you are interested in going, and have not signed up yet, you can ask to have your name put on our waiting list.

Please contact Giovanna Cabaret if you want to be called should a space open up.

Sunshine

It is official!  
Our own Sharon Welch is now vying for the "Proudest Grandmother on the Planet" title.  Her first grandchild, the beautiful Bailey Rose Welch, has at long last arrived.

Best Newcomers and Friends wishes to Baby, Mother, Father,  and Grandparents.  All are doing well!

Sunshine has been a bright month for the Newcomers.  Sylvia Reyes is the only member who we have been aware of as having a health issue.  She was in the hospital with back problems late in December.  She wishes to let her friends know she is now home and sends her thanks all those many caring well wishes and prayers on her behalf. She is recuperating and hopes to be back enjoying the activities soon.

Mary Behnke and Pat Culp

If you or anyone your know has a special celebration or an illness, please send the information to a Sunshine chairperson,  so that she can send them a card and include them in our monthly updates.
