March definitely came in like a lion. Mother Nature kept her biggest and snowiest weather event until spring was just in sight and then arrived in LOW dressed all in white. However, Lionesses took advantage of the quiet time to continue planning for spring events.
The March dinner meeting will begin with a mixer celebrating the various benevolences that make up the annual service events followed by a program presented by Tim Wirtz of St. Jude’s Hospital. During the business portion of the evening the new slate of officers will be put forward by the nominating committee, chaired by Past President Beth Sundberg.
Later in the month the Travel Committee has scheduled a trip to the Bizarre Bazaar in Richmond and on March 28th members will take part in the annual Flea Market/White Elephant and Bake Sale. The month goes out like a lamb with the Lioness Book Sale and March was, indeed, an amazing month.
The first bus trip organized by our new Excursion Committee was a roaring success. (What else would Lionesses do?) On November 5 forty-two members visited the Shirley and Berkeley Plantations situated on the James River and stopped for a gorgeous lunch at the Charles City Tavern. We thank Kathi, Su, Jean, and Joan for getting us where we needed to go and back again.
The December meeting with a local appraiser kept everyone on the edge of their seats with insights into what items are finding a market and which items just have sentimental value.
Please remember that the lights are out in the Clubhouse in January and our next meeting will be in February.
