Welcome to a new season of GPFN! Our Executive and Auxiliary Board, myself included, have b eek busy this summer preparing for the upcoming nine months of activities, which will conclude in June with our evening cocktail party.
If you are attending the Kick-off luncheon Sept. 7, you will be receiving the 2017-18 Membership Handbook. If you don't attend the luncheon, your booklet will be hand-delivered or mailed. Not only is the handbook handy for quickly locating new friends' phone numbers and addresses, it contains a wealth of information about activities we coordinate apart from the monthly luncheon and speaker at the Country Club of Detroit. We have policies regarding guests, reservations for events and you will find the Club By-laws at the end of the booklet.
As announced last year, the monthly been General Luncheon charge rises to $20 this year. This is necessary because, quite frankly, costs have risen to accommodate our large group. This will enable us to "break even" on a monthly basis. The charge for our specialty luncheons: the September Kick-Off, December Holiday boutiques, and May Celebrations will hold at $30.00.
Finally, I am pleased to have the honor of serving as your President this year. I hope you will attend luncheons and activities with an open mind to connecting with new friends as well as old. We have so many interesting tales to tell each other! In the meantime, here is something to ponder:
