Susan Reynhout – Publicity Chairman
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! A tremendous way to celebrate the holidays is with friends at a festive brunch. Enjoy special Christmas music, delicious food and an inspirational message especially for the season. It’s a lovely way to reconnect with friends at this special time of the year. Invite your girlfriends to join you on Thursday, December 14 in the Kingston Ballroom of the Oakwood Country Club of Sun Lakes at 9:00 a.m. You will be so glad you made this holiday event a priority.
Who doesn’t love Christmas music? Stephen Ramsey, a college senior majoring in music, will solo at the piano with orchestral accompaniments. Vocalists will also be a part of the program.
Our special celebration will continue with a talk titled Priceless Gift. Petra Mehlhorn comes to us from Tempe, AZ. This extremely talented speaker is European-born and a former refugee. Petra has been a registered nurse and now mentors women. She will share how to celebrate freedom and the greatest gift of all. Hearing her talk will add meaning to the season for you.
Adding to the festivity of the morning will be Susan Haviland, previous owner of Poppy’s Home Décor. Susan will have a table at the back of the ballroom filled with holiday and home décor items which you can purchase.
