Twenty members of the Book Exchange Interest Group met at the home of June Boudreau last night for the Annual Wine & Cheese AND Book Selection Party. Thank you to June, Mary Bould and Nancy McNaughton who are the organizers of this popular group which has five sections with twelve members each.
As we discussed the more than 40 books suggested in order to select 12 to be read during the year, we enjoyed the delicious sweets, savouries and beverages provided by our hostesses.
Thank you also to Irene Hiebert who gave us interesting and valuable insight into a number of the selections on the list.
Mary, Nancy and I cordially invite you to the Annual Wine & Cheese AND Book Selection Party on Thursday, August 21 at 7:30. Please find the invitation attached below.
We sincerely hope you will be able to participate in this most important part of the Book Exchange Interest Group. Even if you can’t attend the party, we encourage you to submit your choice of titles at least a week before the party, and then vote for your favourite 12 picks following the party.
If you know of any CFUW members (or prospective members) who would like to join, please let me know and I will be happy to send them an invitation.
Thank you and continue to enjoy your summer reading!
I would like to propose a toast to the club and the members for pulling off a classy show today. Whether you worked in the gardens or in the kitchen or supported the tour by purchasing a ticket and attending, it was by any standard a very fine event.
For my part I enjoyed working with a frighteningly efficient kitchen crew. I continue to be so very, very impressed with a group of women who do anything that they set out to do. It has been very good to work with you and I want to thank you for making today possible. Our only limit is our imagination.
At this point, we do not have a total of revenues collected. It will be acceptable regardless. We did have some challenges this year that we will not have next year. I will share this information with you as soon as it becomes available.
In the meantime, enjoy the summer hiatus. You have earned it.
