Ladies Newcomer's Brunch!

The Ladies Newcomer's Brunch this year was a huge success!  It was well attended by both members, new members, and faculty wives.  It started with a "Mimosa mix & mingle" time.  This was great to meet all the new faces!

Kate welcoming everyone!

Beautiful ladies!

A special thanks to Andrea Fronk for donating her time and talents to play the harp for us.  It was a perfect touch!

We also had our annual "style show".  This year we asked The Style Co. if they would be interested in sponsoring this event.  Tiffany, the owner, was amazing to work with  planning this event.  She donated her time, clothes, and gift card for the event.  Not to mention she gave everyone at the brunch a 25 % off coupon!  She is located  on 14th Street across from Mosquito Cafe! 

Thanks to our models- Amanda, Tiffani, Lindsay, Jamie, and Courtney!  You girls rocked!!

All the models!

2011 Resitern Board- amazing group of women! :) (Also with Mrs. Dolly Warren- sponsoring the De'Feet Breast Cancer walk)

Here is the set up!  
A big thanks to Hayley at Happenings for creating the invitations, programs, and place cards.  LOVE!

Thanks again for all that attended this event!  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
See you soon!
