A huge "thank you" to everyone that came out and supported our Wine & Beer Tasting - our last fundraiser for the 2013-2014 club year. Birch Meadow in Bloomfield was a great venue, and their food and service was fabulous! The wines from Bert's Spirits and beers from Back East Brewery were a hit. Bert's owner, Jim gave an crash course in how to taste wine. Thank you to all the club members that worked behind the scenes to make this a successful event, especially Ginny and Mary, who worked so hard organizing everything, including procuring the silent auction items.

At our recent March meeting, those in attendance enjoyed viewing the numerous crafty items which members submitted for the club's annual judging competition. Several items received a first place award, and these items will go on to be judged at the District 6 meeting on March 29th. Please go to our Facebook page - GFWC Windsor Womans Club of Connecticut to view the photos of these lovely items.
Club members and guests of the GFWC Windsor Woman’s Club’s recent March meeting heard from member and real estate agent, Louise Lombardi, about steps in preparing homes for sale. Louise advised the audience that there are many businesses out there which can assist you in whatever project you want to tackle – from a simple decluttering project, (reach out to your family and friends and have them stop by and help themselves to an item or two – donate to local and area organizations that can share your abundance with others); to preparing your home for sale such as letting in as much light as possible by replacing heavy drapes with sheers, painting walls with light tones - both of which makes rooms look larger and minimizing your imprint on your home, so buyers can see their belongs in what will be their home. It is also important to keep up on your home’s maintenance, such as: roofs, driveways, electrical and heating systems. When making repairs, keep your budget in mind and deal with the most urgent repair first. If making repairs it not feasible, you can adjust your home’s list price to reflect that and buyers can make an educated purchase.
The Sunshine Kids, (a non-profit organization dedicated to children with cancer), will receive an honorarium in Louise's name.
