Finally, we can say goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring !!! So now the busy season is upon us. So exciting!
We are gearing up for the big event – our 2019 Wine & Beer Tasting & Silent Auction on Saturday, April 27th in St. Gabriel’s Hall. Remember to get your tickets and tell all your friends. Let’s top last year’s event! We have a great venue, a repeat of Jason’s great carving station, and lots of great items to bid on at the Silent Auction. Come one, come all! TICKETS WILL BE ON SALE AT THE MEETING.
Our next general meeting is on Tuesday, April 9th at 6:30 PM, L.P. Wilson and promises to be a doosey! Before we have our annual Ice Cream Social, we are going to ask you all to participate and listen to our Committee Chairwomen as they describe what their committee does. We have 10 openings coming up next club year and we need people to step up. No one has to agree to be Chairperson, sign up for the Committee that calls to you. The more hands the easier it is. Things just don’t happen by wiggling our noses. Everyone has to pitch in.
We will also be taking a vote on our 2019-2020 Executive Board:
President: Joanne Sullivan
Vice-President: Sharon Weaver
Secretary: Maureen Andryuk
Treasurer: Glenys Lemere
Saturday, April 13th, is our annual District Day. Many members of our club will be attending what promises to be a fun, exciting day at Manchester Country Club. I sincerely hope that you can all try to make all of these great events as we draw near the end of another great club year. Don’t forget the Installation Dinner coming up in May. TICKETS FOR THIS WILL ALSO BE ON SALE AT THE MEETING. Alice

Wine & Beer Tasting & Silent Auction
Wine & Beer Tasting & Silent Auction
It’s coming up soon! Posters are on display all over town (and a few in Windsor Locks)!
We still have openings for several volunteers on Sat., April 27th. Sign-up sheets will be available at our April 9th meeting.
If you have an item to donate for the silent auction, please notify Ginny or Mary as soon as possible so that all can be included in the Wine Tasting Journal.
Delicious food is on order! For those who don’t wish to sample the (18?) wines or beers, there will be plenty of soft drinks, water, coffee and tea available…. All inclusive with your $30.00 ticket purchase.
Tickets will be available at our April 9th meeting or call to reserve yours today.
Come join us for a fun evening. Open to all 21 and over.
Ginny 688-4816 or firstname.lastname@example.org, Mary 683-0347 or Lisa 729-5665
Maureen Andryuk - 860-285-8685
On p.m., we will have Game Night at the home of Barbara Davis, 25 Nook Farms. Bring your favorite games. There will be a sign-up sheet for this event at the next meeting. There will be a separate sign-up sheet for snacks.
Landmark Building Sales
We will have our usual free space at the Lions Club Spring Craft Fair, Sat. May 11th AND at Shad Derby Day, Sat., May 18th.
These events have traditionally been our best sales revenues for the Historic Windsor Building replicas. Space is offered to us at no charge because we are members of the Shad Fest Bureau, a community service organization for over 50 years in Windsor.
Hours for both events are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. I will be looking for 6-8 members to work a 2 or 2 ½ hour shift each Saturday. Sign-up sheets will be available at our April 9th meeting or you may call me at 688-4816 or email me at email@example.com.
This is an easy event fundraiser as each $10.00 sale nets $5.00 profit for our treasury.
Added bonus! Both events bring lots of folks to the Green – often run into friends you haven’t seen in a long time.
