Meeting Updates

February Meeting
Our next meeting is February 8, 2010 at 5:00 PM. The place has changed to the Media Room in the Encore Building at Northwest Valley. The Scholarship Committee has been working on an interactive Valentine Program. Your guess is as good as mine on what "Interactive Valentines" are.

The Menu will include: Baked chicken breast, Broccoli-Rice Casserole, Green Bean Almondine, House Salad, Bread/Butter, Tea, Angelfood Cake with Strawberries. Cost $9.00

The last day to RSVP is January 29, 2010. Building Reps, please email Regina Franks with a list of names of those attending, instead of just a number. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

March Meeting Changes
The March meeting has changed due to an increase in the cost of Dave and Busters. The March meeting will be March 8, 2010 at 5:00 PM at the Northwest Valley Library.

April Meeting

Thank You and Good News!

Congratulations to Amy Navo for receiving a NWLEAFF Grant of $750.00 on behalf of the elementary CATS program.
  • A BIG THANK YOU to Sherri Talbott for the use of her house for last week's Executive Meeting.

  • Thank you to all who met at the Blue Owl for the December meeting. We had so many we couldn't sit in the Texas Room. As always it was fun to be together at that happy time of year. We collected $191 for our Oaxacan daughter. A collection will be taken at the February meeting.

  • Fifteen retirees and friends spent a wonderful day helping others at the Board of Religious Organizations. The BRO helps to assure that 4,000 children wake up to presents on Christmas morning and we were a small part of that joy. We worked hard and laughed a lot. Thanks to all who helped that day. You make me proud to be part of Gamma Tau.

In this time of unexpected transition, it would be helpful if I could have the names of each committee chair and the present member of their committee. Please email this info to me as soon as possible.

I can use this form of communication with "relative ease". Your patience at this time is appreciated.
