President's Message 

It’s(finally) October.  Those of us who stayed on in the Valley during the summer are relieved to find the days growing cooler.   And we welcome back our snowbird Members most of whom are returning this month.   Club activities are gearing up, new ones being added, and popular ones filling up quickly.  Keep an eye on the calendar.

I hope you all have read the two eblasts that have already gone out this month.  The first concerned proposed changes in Club operations: our name, non-profit status, and membership year.  These changes necessitate revisions to our Bylaws, which will be voted upon at the October 27 monthly Meeting/Luncheon.  I have received feedback from several members, and I appreciate your thoughts.

The second and more recent blast was the invitation to our Holiday Celebration to be held on Saturday, December 3.  The invitation includes information about the event location, time, menu, cost, and how to reserve.  We hope both singles and couples will enjoy this festive brunch/lunch and invite friends.  We have lots of space, in a beautiful setting, and look forward to seeing you all there.

I am so pleased to announce that Peggy Faseler has accepted the position of Director of Communications, completing  (another finally!) your 2016-17 Board.  Peggy is moving from VP Membership to Director of Communications where she will work with a terrific team consisting of our Eblast  Manager, Photographer, Public Relations/Marketing Manager, and Webmaster.  At the same time, we welcome JoAnne Crawford as our new VP Membership.  JoAnne will do a marvelous job, and will work with her team of Hospitality Manager and Welcomer.

 But we are also looking ahead to our 2017-18 year.  I have appointed a Nominating Committee chaired by Pat Lewis, and including   Nicole Abbott, Terry Bachenheimer, Ruth Couse and Harold Roth.  They are tasked with identifying  a slate of 5 officers for next year: President, VP Programs, VP Membership, Treasurer, and Secretary, to be presented to and approved by the Board at our December Board meeting.  The slate will be presented to the Membership in January.  If anyone has an interest in any of these or other Board or Committee positions, please get back to me at or Pat Lewis at

 Finally I hope you’ve noticed that we’ve moved our Fashion Show from March to the October Meeting/Luncheon.  Wendy Werth, VP Programs, is working with the amazing boutique Paris Paris, which has a few locations around the Valley.  Wendy is arranging a stunning and fun assemblage of creative clothing, accessories, and home furnishings for our pleasure.  Please join us on Thursday, October 27 at Grayhawk Country Club .  Registration is now open on our website.  See you there.

Ardis Willwerth, President
