October 2023
                                                                ***NEWS FLASH UPDATE***

Sunday, December 10, 2023, is the new date for our annual "CHRISTMAS BANQUET."

Mira Vista Country Club informed us on Wednesday, August 23, that due to a conflict with their scheduling, we would not be able to have the banquet as originally planned on December 3. So, mark your calendars for December 10. Remember no seating until 1:15 PM. Seating will be pre-assigned, so be sure to
check in at the sign-in table to get your table number. Dining will start at 1:30 PM.

The silent auction table will be in the back of the seating area downstairs this year. We have some beautiful items (refer to the attached flyer). Plan to do some holiday shopping!

Nancy Poole, Banquet Chairperson, will be visiting all functions to collect money for early reservations ($30 per person by November 17), or you may give your payment to your event host. If you want to sit with friends at a table for 8 or 10, please turn in all names and money together.

The Christmas Banquet always affords a wonderful venue and atmosphere for an afternoon of socializing with friends and great music for your listening and/or dancing pleasure. In this day of casual everything, our Christmas Banquet offers you an excuse to dress up and get out with others who are doing the same.

Door prizes will be awarded to those present.

If anyone would like to donate items for door prizes or knows someone else who would like to donate door prizes, please contact Nancy at 812-593-1578 (note that the area code is 812, not 817).

Also, we are still looking for men willing to volunteer as dance host partners to dance with the single unaccompanied ladies. Contact Nancy ASAP if you would be willing to volunteer.

Hope to see all of you there.Nancy Sheffer-Poole, Christmas Banquet Chairperson'

Phyllis Weisheit, President
