Susan Witzel is excited to be Auxiliary hostess for the Memphis, Tn. Dates are Sept. 27th – 30th, 2017. The Memphis Hilton Hotel is planning a welcome barbeque on Wednesday evening, Sept 26th. Be sure to get signed up and paid up on your registration forms!! This is a very popular new event for our meetings. Ladies, be sure to join us at all of our events. The men think they have a great time with their tool collecting – but we’re the ones who have the most fun of all!! Come and see how true that is!
We will definitely be MAKING MEMORIES IN MEMPHIS! The theme for Auxiliary displays is: THE FABRIC OF OUR LIVES. The book choice is: MRS. LINCOLN’S DRESSMAKER by JENNIFER CHIAVERINI. We welcome Francis Fite as our new discussion leader. Ladies, please come and join us, even if you haven’t read the book. It is always fun.
Thursday morning the women tour while the men “do tools.” Several interesting tours are planned. Be sure to check them out as soon as your registration form arrives and be sure to sign up. Men are welcome too. Our first “official” meeting is on Thursday evening. It is called MEET AND GREET. We honor new members and present them with a gift from the Auxiliary. We also share some of our latest “finds” or what we have been doing as far as hobbies go, or something special that has happened since we last got together.
The Friday evening program is entitled, “FUN WITH FABRICS & FEED SACKS.” Conni Newby, Susan Witzel & Mariann Simmons are busily creating an interesting, humorous, and historical “hands on” talk on this intriguing subject. You won’t believe all the treasures that have emerged from storage bins & boxes! Hooray!!
The AUXILIARY BRUNCH will begin at 8:30 on Saturday. Faye Beckwith, from Nashville, will be sharing items with us from her fantastic collection of over 1,000 TOY & MINIATURE SEWING MACHINES. I am anxious to hear what she has to say. Know it will be fascinating. I am thinking she is going to bring out the child in all of us! A short business meeting will follow the program. Also, the grand prize winner for the women’s displays will be presented!
