Our January 2, 2010 meeting provided a nice turnout for a cold and windy holiday weekend. The group welcomed two new members this evening. As a change of pace, and to warm up the membership, hot pizza was delivered. After the general meeting and announcements, an open forum discussion group was held for interested members.

Donna, of Donna's Hair Studio in Ewing, New Jersey will be giving a presentation on hair care and makeup at our next meeting in February. Donna is a long time supported of our community and has participated in many of our largest events.

Planning has begun for our annual Spring Banquet to be held on Saturday May 1, 2010. The membership discussed possible locations for this years event with the Nevermore Hotel, Ramada Inn, and Town and County as potential venues. We will be discussing the Spring Banquet further at our next meeting in February and hope to finalize a location. There is no regular meeting at the Church in May, the Church holds a large annual event every year and utilizes the entire facility.

Our regular pre meeting social Party is scheduled at the Raven in New Hope, Pennsylvania on Saturday February 6. No reservations are required. Soda and drinks are available at the bar. You may arrive at any time, however 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM is ideal to get a parking place and enjoy a few hours before departing to the meeting about 20 minutes away. If you are planning to have lunch at the Raven, please arrive before 3:00 PM as the kitchen is now closed between lunch and dinner.

Our next scheduled meeting is Saturday February 6, 2010. This meeting will be held at the Church in their upstairs facilities. Please enter at the main front door of the Church rather than the side door. An open forum discussion group will also be held after the general meeting and presentation for members interested in a focused round table venue.
