- Annual Meeting May 23 at Sugarbaker's - A champagne brunch!
As the League of Women Voters celebrates its 95th birthday, LWV-CC celebrates its 70th. Our annual meeting is scheduled for Saturday morning, May 23rd. All members are encouraged to attend.
It is important to RSVP your intention to attend the annual meeting and how many you are reserving for so that Sugarbakers can prepare the correct amount of food. Please leave a message at 445-4436 on or before May 21st. The menu will include waffles, quiche, French toast and other breakfast pastries as well as champagne flavored mimosas. We are meeting from 10 a.m. until noon at Sugarbaker's at 2766 Santa Fe.
The cost for this special brunch occasion is $20 per person, and we encourage you to bring your spouse or a friend who is interested in the work of the League.
Ms. Ruthann Geer, past president of the Texas LWV and current Leadership Membership Development (MLD) coach for our chapter, will be a special guest and will officiate at the installation of the new officers (2015-2016 Officer Nominees).
Many of you are unable to come to our weekday luncheon meetings and our weekday evening meetings, but we are betting that Saturday morning will work for everyone.
We need all members to be present to participate in electing officers for the coming year, to approve the proposed budget, and to ratify the changes that have been made to our local position statements. We look forward to seeing everyone there! (See the May 2015 VOTER for more information.)
Membership renewal now available on-line. Memberships run May 31 thru June 1.
