President's Message 

I want to tell you about some changes that are happening in our Community Liaison area.  Although the Club has been involved in local charity outreach since our founding as part of Welcome Wagon in 1968, in recent years we have concentrated on identifying a local charity for whom we collect money/needed items at each of our monthly Meeting/Luncheons.  This year your Board voted to increase our financial contribution by designating an additional $200 every month October – April.

Early this summer, several new Members suggested additional outreach activities including:

  • arranging a tour/presentation – a behind the scenes look at what a local charity is actually doing.
  • organizing a group work day at a charity when needed, for instance serving meals at a holiday.
We are all very excited about these new opportunities.  Lorraine Funk, our Community Liaison Director, though supportive of the projects, works full time.  She did not feel she could devote the additional time to see them through in the manner she and the Club would wish.  Fortunately Susan Ille, a new Member who had championed one of the outreach ideas, has agreed to take over the Board position.  Susan is currently gathering ideas and Members who are willing to get involved.  If you are interested, please contact her at

I promised I would have news this month of a 2016 Newcomers Holiday event.  Final details are still being worked out; but save the date of Saturday, December 3, for a festive brunch/lunch at The McCormick Scottsdale in their charming Lakeside Room with its lovely views of Camelback Lake.  The buffet menu will satisfy those looking for either breakfast or lunch, or those who want to graze among all the choices.  All Members are invited and encouraged to bring guests.  Susan Stephens' committee has particularly tried to design an event that will appeal to both couples and singles.  And they look forward to greeting us all at the door.  Expect an eblast later in the month with full details: cost, how and when to register, and RSVP deadline.

.Finally, September is the last of our summer BYOM luncheons: this month at Drexyl in The Shops Gainey Village.  We will order off a limited menu of their Modern American specialties reflecting the chef's most popular dishes.  We will be in a private room which seats only 32, so sign up soon!.. And note the early deadline for reservations: Thursday, September 15.  Hope to see you there.

Ardis Willwerth, President
