President’s Letter

March 17 was when the little green men arrived! Here is hoping everyone had a Happy St. Patrick"s Day whether you have a little Irish, no Irish, or all Irish.

We had a successful March luncheon with a great attendance including many guests. Jimmy Carnelli was entertaining and his music brought many memories of the great music from the past. Thank you Grace Elliott and Karen Fine for arranging a wonderful afternoon.

The April 12th luncheon will be held at the Valencia Country Club, so please call or email Pat Passalacqua for your reservation. We are looking forward to our Singing Sisters for the amazing entertainment they always provide.

I want to thank all the ladies who bring raffle prizes to the luncheons, the more gifts the more winners.

We now have the By-Laws on line, so all club members may access them at our web site ncandf.com.

AFTERNOON TEA GROUP

Wow, what a great tea we had this month. We had 16 ladies arrive for our 1 year anniversary tea. It was a gypsy theme with lots of color, ribbons, "Gypsy ladies" and a tambourine! Our quiz had several ladies with the right answers and many of us learned a bit more about current events and of course, gypsy culture. The food was beautiful and tasty and was accompanied by Gypsy Tea. Bravo to the participants.

May Tea is filled but, you can sign up for the July Tea (to be held at Irene Jansson's home) beginning in April. Call Jodie Baker for a reservation after April 1st.

VAGABONDS

Giovanna Cabaret, Alyce Kesselman, Sharon Welch

The party bus will take to the road again on Tues. and Wed.,
April 24 – 25, 2012.  The ladies who have committed to go are eagerly anticipating another fun filled trip. This time Vagabonds will be exploring central California’s beautiful San Joaquin Valley, the #1 agricultural production area in the United States!

They will be visiting the spectacular Forestiere Underground Gardens and lunching in the Swedish village of Kingsburg.  There will be a guided tour along the famous “fruit trail” and an overnight stay at the Chukchansi Gold Resort Hotel and Casino.  There will be a visit to a family farm and of course surprises along the way. 
 
This grand adventure includes roundtrip transportation on our Deluxe
 Party Bus and is only $297.00 (double occupancy.) 

If you have any interest in going on this trip, please call Giovanna Cabaret and ask her to put you on the waiting list should a space should open up for this wonderful journey.

If you’re going on the VNFF (Vegetables, Nuts, Fruit and Flowers) Trip

Our coach will await us in the parking lot of the 24 hour Wal-Mart on Carl Boyer Drive.  Please park in far right (grocery side) towards the back.  Car Pool if possible!

DO NOT ARRIVE TOO EARLY because we will be boarding by yet another “Vagabonds Scheme” and you will not be able to board the bus early or put your luggage on the bus before   7:50 AM.  We will board promptly and leave at 8:00 AM SHARP.   Set TWO alarm clocks if you need them!  In order to be fair to those going and to be able to stick to our schedule, we will not wait for Latecomers!!!

Eat  breakfast at home if you must, but be aware that we will be serving some  morning snacks as soon as we leave Santa Clarita for those who did the “wake and run”.

Take a “not-too large” case or bag that you can handle by yourself!   Bring layers to deal with all temperatures.  This is a relaxed, not “dressed up” trip so comfortable clothes and walking shoes are appropriate. 

Come monetarily prepared for any miscellaneous spending opportunities.

PLEASE BRING A SENSE OF ADVENTURE AND A FUN LOVING SPIRIT!!!!
THE PARTY BUS IS READY TO ROLL!

Sunshine

March has apparently been a good month for the newcomers, as most of the news has been very positive. Laura Starr's hip surgery went very smoothly and her recovery has gone quite well. She is looking forward to being able to drive soon and return to her normal activities.

Mavis Skarr is also recuperating at home and would like all her friends to know how very much your cards and calls have meant to her.

Please feel free to inform either Pat Culp or Mary Behnke if there is any good news or issues which you would like to be publicized.


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.
