Women’s Club Luncheon – Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 12:00 in the Clubhouse

The Women’s Club luncheon will take place at noon on Thursday, November 13 in the ClubHouse. Our speaker will be Polly Bowen of the Orange County Fire Authority who will tell us about the 2014 Firefighters’ Spark of Love Toy Drive.

As part of the Orange County Toy Collaborative, which includes the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, OC fire stations collect and distribute approximately 300,000 toys annually to Orange County children who may otherwise go without during the holiday season. Please join our local firefighters in spreading holiday cheer by bringing a new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment to the luncheon. Firefighters will be on hand to collect and transport your gifts.

To add to the fun, there will be prizes for members bringing the best toys in the following four categories: Cutest Toy, Best Toy for Imaginative Play, Best Toy for Active Play, and Best Toy for an Older Child (12 years & up). The winner in each category will receive a $3 credit entitling her to free entrance at the next luncheon she attends. Winners will still be required to bring a salad if it is their turn to do so.

Lunch will be served at 12:30. Look for your e-mail invitation on Thursday, November 6, and please RSVP by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 9. If you are planning to attend, you will then be informed by email if it is your turn to bring a salad. The luncheon attendance fee is $3. Members are to bring a salad for 10 to 12 every other time they attend. Members bringing guests will be asked to pay $5 for each guest but are not required to bring an extra salad.

At the October meeting of the Women’s Club we had the opportunity to meet and greet eight of the nine candidates for Dana Point City Council. They answered questions read to them by Nancy Tinnes, which were sent in by the Club members. It was informative and helpful as we determine our choices for these three open offices in the upcoming election on November 4. Don’t forget to vote!
