Women’s Club November Luncheon: Photo Gallery
































On October 12 the Clubhouse was transformed into a Black and Orange Halloween bash! Surrounded by tables decorated with black cloths, pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, chocolate treats, and Halloween cookies, President Lydia Reese dressed as a Mongolian Princess led the many costumed members in a “Monster Mash” parade around the room. After many photo ops she called the meeting to order and introduced our newest member Linda Curie, and mentioned our members who are celebrating October birthdays. She also thanked everyone for adhering to the new policy of bringing a salad if you RSVP after the normal deadline of noon on the Monday preceding the Luncheon. As a final point of business, the amended Bylaws were approved unanimously.
After a delicious buffet of colorful salads, we were treated to a riveting talk by our guest speaker Leonard Szymczak, a local psychotherapist and life coach. Mr. Szymczak discussed the unique shape that each personality takes from the early childhood conditioning of family values and environment.
He discussed the dynamics of relationships, how men and women differ in their approaches to life, and how conflict can be an opportunity for growth when each side examines their own assumptions. Using amusing slides, Szymczak showed the basic needs in a relationship, how to build connections, and the “languages” or expressions of love people use toward one another. His latest book The Roadmap Home, Your GPS to Inner Peace was available to purchase.
Our November 9 meeting will call attention to the service and sacrifices that our military veterans have unselfishly provided to our nation. Lydia reminded us to bring a photo or a memento of a veteran to share with our luncheon tablemates in November. Until then . .
