This message is long but necessary! The Board of Directors of the GFWC
Woman’s Club of Tarpon Springs has voted to change the location of the Monthly Luncheon Meetings and the Membership Tea to:
The Tarpon Springs Yacht Club
350 N. Spring Blvd.
Tarpon Spring, Florida 34688
Four Board Members visited several venues and recommended to the Board that we use the Yacht Club because: there is ample parking for our Membership, the inside of the Yacht Club really looks nice with all of the changes, the outdoor patio is wonderful, the quality of food has greatly improved, and we felt welcomed to be there.
Three Board members met with the cook and the food supervisor and we selected great choices for every meal next year.
The cost of the regular meeting meals will be $20.00 to the members and he cost of the Tea will be $15.00 to the members.
We realize that the Membership Tea in the past was free to members but having some members buy the food, prepare the food, and bring the food to the Tea was getting old. In addition, members had to pull out 100 glass plates and cups from storage and wash and dry them before and after the Tea. It is time for a change.
We will still have the Past Presidents pour the Refreshments from our silver tea set. Nothing will change except we will free ourselves of doing the work. The Yacht Club will prepare the tea sandwiches, etc.
For the record, there will be room for the Art Mart and the GWFC Art and Craft Festival at the Yacht Club.
The only event planned for a different location will be the Fun Day Event. It will be held at the Heritage Museum on October 31, 2018.
So, for the record, we will meet at the Yacht Club on:
September 19, 2018. Membership Tea
October 17, 2018. Monthly Membership Meeting
November 21, 2018. Monthly Membership Meeting
December 19, 2018 Monthly Membership Meeting
January 16,2019 Monthly Membership Meeting
February 20, 2019 Monthly Membership Meeting
April 17, 2019 Monthly Membership Meeting
May 15, 2019 Monthly Membership Meeting.
I hope you will be pleased with these changes. More information about the September 19 Membership Tea will be coming to you later.
Teddy Stephen, President
