October General Meeting and Luncheon 2016
On Wednesday, October 19th, 114 ladies enjoyed an delicious meal of Roasted Cod, Artisan Chicken Salad or Vegetarian Pasta at the beautiful Oaks Club in downtown Osprey. The colorful autumn table decorations were put together by Linda Schauer, Anne Walsh, Katy Arrillaga and Mary Leflar and the center pieces added much to the festive atmosphere of the room. The table seating was random which gave the guests the opportunity of meeting new members and making new friends. Kate Holmes, from the Sarasota Historical Society did a superb job in re-enacting the life of Bertha Palmer. What a fascinating woman she was and how much we have to thank her for the development of the lovely town where we now reside. The ladies were universal in their praise for the venue, the meal and the guest speaker. Thank you to Linda Schauer and Anne Walsh for organizing such a successful first event of the UPWC year!
