A Message from our President

Hello Ladies ,
We are just sailing through this month of September.  Our first event of the season was at Big Sur Vineyards, and while it was a hot day, we all had fun and mingled and caught up with our friends.  We also welcomed new members and lovely guests.  We have such great things planned for the rest of the year and beyond.  Our October lunch will be at the charming Anton & Michel in Carmel-by-the-Sea.  More information will be available soon on that event.  We also have a fun "Sip and Shop" coming up Wednesday, October 26th at Avant Garden, a lovely shop in the CV Village, hosted by Connie Hong-Smith.

Our November lunch will be at Tarpy’s Roadhouse.  And our Holiday Extravaganza will be here before you know it , with great gifts and shopping in store.  As always we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help put this great event together. So if you are interested in helping please contact me at (831)  298-7181.

As always ladies, I would love to hear from you with your ideas and thoughts for our beloved club. The board of directors of our club and I, your President, are always looking for new ways to engage with our members and make all of our events fun and memorable.

Warm regards,
Kathy Kaminski

Our guest speaker will be Will Bullas, one of Carmel's most famous artists, and certainly its most hilarious. Will has been combining his fine arts background and his humorous point of view for over 40 years. He is a member of both the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society, and is past President and current member of the Carmel Arts Association. Be prepared to venture into the fascinating world of an artist who routinely makes wildlife spring to life in unexpected ways as he speaks to us on "Humor in Art: Will Bullas, Unsupervised".

Reservations can be made HERE

Reservations must be made before September 30 , 12:00 noon.

An Affair to Remember - New Member Reception - September 7

2022 Sept New Member Reception
And what a wonderful afternoon (heat and all!) it was.  With three different wines (white, red and rosé) from Big Sur Vineyards to fortify us, and beautiful hors d'oeuvres from Jeromes to please our palates, we met with new members (Shout out to Carrie Appling, Cassie Mendonca and Lillian Barbeito), as well as several guests of members (Len Anable, Carole Bellis, Carol Lenters, Liz Rondelle, Julie Terry, and Suzanne Saunders Shaw - who wins the prize for knowing the most members).   We hope our end-of-summer bash convinces them all to join our merry bunch as a permanent member.
Thanks to existing members who recruited the new members, and who invited guests and are pressing them to join.    
Enjoy the photos!
