Chers Confrères,

First, and most important, Regina joins me in wishing you and your family our best wishes for a Happy and Joyous Holiday Season and a Very Happy New Year!

We have just concluded a successful 2018 capped by a very successful Holiday Party. We had over 70 people in attendance, and more than 20 of them were prospective new members. A special “Thank You” to those of you who brought in a new member this past year, and who brought a new prospect to the Holiday Party.

We have grown our membership over the past 18 months from 14 to 40! And with the turnout last week, we should have another great year with membership growth in 2018.

The highlight of the year was our Induction Dinner where the induction was officiated by our National President, Harold Small. He inducted 14 new members and 8 new Mondiale members that evening. I think we were very fortunate that he selected our bailliage to officiate at one of the few inductions he attends each year.

SAVE THE DATE: Our next event will be on Saturday, March 10th at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. The theme will be “The Great Gatsby.” So start planning now for what you will wear to dress the part. Dressing like you would have in the 1920’s is optional

The prospective new members that attended the Holiday Party will also be invited. Please contact your guest to assess their interest in becoming a member and let Marilyn Wessel know. This year, new prospects will be invited to a maximum of two events. If they have not committed by then, there will not be further invitations.

Thanks to all of you, and especially our board members,  for your support this year.
