HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

THOUGHT OF THE DAY: 

"Throw caution to the wind, plan a new adventure today!" 

 

MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE: 

Ladies:

We hope you had a amazing holiday with family and friends!

Based on the survey it looks like the majority of the members are willing to travel to the Maritimes. The most popular time of the year is June. It will be scheduled for mid-week, however, the time of the year will only vary slightly, depending on prices. For instance, between last week in May or first week in June of 2024. 

The location of Reunion 16 will be announced in the February newsletter.

We are looking for new members!  Please talk with your luncheon group and friends about our reunions.  Anyone interested in joining can fill out a new member form here, or ask for more details here.

If you have any comments or would like to participate with in the next reunion, please reply to this newsletter or contact us here.

  

LUNCHEONS:
