November Monthly Updates - 11/10

Monthly Updates November 2010

President’s Letter

Dear Members:

We are heading quickly into the NEW YEAR - it is unbelievable that 2011 is coming up so fast.  I just looked at the calendar when I took this position and was hoping all would go well.   Well it has, my executive board as well as the total board members have done a remarkable job.  New and old members merged so well and helpful with one another's needs - thank you...

The luncheon at the Valencia's Country Club was excellent and our local performer whom Dixie Peterson searched out was very entertaining - we all had our Country foot tapping.  Thank you.

It seems that our luncheons are being so well attended and new members are coming in and eager to help where necessary.  Keep it up - after the first of the year  - we will eagerly be looking for a new president and anyone wishing to share their duties on the board for any of the offices.

Muriel will be in Greece for a week or so I am speeding ahead with the newsletter.

The next luncheon will be at Valencia Country Club and possibly without a program - read your November Newsletter.

Vagabonds are doing an excellent in their choices of planning activities - I was so sorry I missed the Overnight Trip.

I wish all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING and may all your worries be miniature pumpkins.  And with those pumpkins make a scrumptious soup or Pumpkin Pie.  See you all in November.

Any information that is needed by our members or questions from our board please call me or e-mail me so I will be better prepared with the Luncheon Agenda.

A NOSTALGIC HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE!!

On WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2010 we will be taking a step back in time as we revisit the Good Old Days. 

We will indulge in a delicious lunch at an award winning, upscale, American restaurant.  Established in 1966, it has just recently undergone a “face-lift” and is ready once again to delight discerning diners.  We hear that the location, overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a view of Catalina Island, is gorgeous and will provide the perfect place for the beginning of our holiday happening.

Then, we will head for the historic Old Town Music Hall where we will have an entertainment filled afternoon.   The Music Hall is a restored vintage 1919 theatre and it is home to both a 9 foot Bosendorfer grand piano and a “Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ”.  We will be hearing short concerts on both, have a holiday sing-along and then view some short silent comedies followed by a great old movie.

This is a day designed for fun, nostalgia, and leisure.   You owe it to yourself to take a break from the frenzy of Holiday shopping and preparations. All you have to do is relax and enjoy!

We will be leaving Santa Clarita in the morning and return before dinner. The cost of the trip is $75.00 which includes transportation, tips, lunch, the afternoon of entertainment in the Music Hall and whatever else the Vagabonds can dream up! 

We are currently keeping a waiting list. Call Giovanna Cabaret right away and tell her you want to go if there is an opening.   Mail your check, made out to her, or hand it to her ASAP.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A CONFIRMED PLACE and we have your check, release and lunch choice join us on our comfortable coach which will be waiting at the 24 hour Wal-Mart on Carl Boyer Drive.  Please park on the far right (grocery side) towards the back.  Boarding time will be announced in the December Web News so be sure to read it for more information.

Sunshine

We would like to wish LaNell Barnes husband Charles a speedy recovery from his surgery. We hope to see him hopping about soon.

Congratulations to Jo Ann Ayotte, who we learned was recently married and is now Jo Ann Eldart.

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