    Long month of wait….is coming to an end.

    What an outstanding Holiday party last night at Karen Browns. Everything was perfect from all the wonderful food that was brought by the members to the fun Secret Santa gifts. Thanks to the committee for an outstanding job. Merry Christmas. ��

    I would like to thank everyone involved with the Welcome Back party it was absolutely fabulous. Holly and Lynn's yard was beautiful with the elegant table settings and Sheri Calkins and Holly did an amazing job on the food, it was five-star restaurant quality. And it was not just the food and decor, from the moment we were greeted at the door with special treats until the trivia contest at the end, this committee thought of everything. I can't imagine a better way to welcome our snowbirds back and start our season - kudos to all!

    Lyna told me she is volunteering at the PGA Canadian Open starting tomorrow, Wednesday June 7. She is working Wed-Sat as a Marshall on Hole 1. She had to promise not to say “Shut the #&*@ up” to unruly spectators since media will be swarming the place!
    Let’s watch for her on TV…post a pic on TLQWGC Facebook if you see her!
