Scholarships – Brenda Eubank provided a brief overview of the scholarship process, which will be funded with monies from the Silent Auction.  April 15th is the deadline.  Please share information with any lady in our community that is interested in pursuing additional educational opportunities.
Golf Tournament – The annual Charity “for ladies only” Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, April 29th.   The theme this year will be “Black and White”.  The tournament will be a Par 3 this year and the cost will be approximately $75.  The emphasis this month is in confirming the hole sponsors and lining up new sponsorships.  Lots of volunteers are needed.  Anyone interested in volunteering to help with this event should contact Pam Parsons or Carolyn Richmond.

Program

Members were delighted with a fashion show emceed by Mary Ann Fletcher and showcasing outfits purchased from the Marble Falls Library Thrift Store, which serves as a primary fundraising arm of the local library.  Ladies were amazed to learn that brand name outfits from Coldwater Creek, Harve Bernard, and Chicos could be purchased for a fraction of their original retail costs.

A display of clothing and jewelry were available for members to purchase, or if desired, members could go over to the thrift shop with a 10% discount coupon.
