September seems like such a short month because of all the activities that get going again and before we know it, our October meeting is right around the corner! We had fun at beautiful Geneva Point Center with our annual Coffee Can Auction. Now it’s time for us to get back ‘home’ to the ‘Lions Club’ (also known as the Moultonborough Function Hall).
IMPORTANT MEETING INFORMATION
We gather, check-in, and chat at 11:30AM, with lunch starting at 12:00PM. The attached Attendance file lists those who signed up at the September meeting, but if you missed that meeting and are planning on attending - or you must change your plans, PLEASE contact Susan Doherty-Funke, Hospitality Co-Chair, at email@example.com to sign up. We need to have an accurate number for lunch (Chicken Stir Fry) by Saturday, September 22. Yes, that means act quickly – like right NOW! Also, remember that we all have to fill out the Senior Lunch forms in October, so plan on a little extra time at Membership registration.
GUEST SPEAKER – Tappan Chairs
We are excited to hear – and see - our speaker for October. Adam Nudd-Homeyer of Sandwich’s Tappan Chairs will walk us through the 7-generation history of this local company’s chair making, showing us examples of several of the craftsmen’s beautiful products.
NOTE: We had a scheduling conflict arise with the Antique Dolls presentation that was listed in this year’s MWC Handbook. We appreciate Adam’s availability for our meeting.
