    Fashion Show and Luncheon

     “Silver Reflections”

    March 26 at 11 am

    I still remember my parents’ 25th anniversary clearly. My aunts and uncles put together a money tree with silver dollars hanging from clips all over it and we all dressed up and went to Win Schuler’s Restaurant in Marshall, MI for a fancy dinner with linen tablecloths and coleslaw made with whipped cream. OK, so I don’t remember ALL the details, but it was a big celebration! So much had happened since they married in 1940 and Dad went off to fly supply planes across China during the war. They were grateful that he had returned safely and that they could raise their 4 children in peacetime. We were grateful that we got to order steak! But so much had happened in those 25 years.

    A group of Deercreek friends got together 25 years ago, to form our Deercreek Home and Garden Club to help beautify our neighborhood and began the long list of projects given to Deercreek. So many things have happened here during those 25 years too. Trees planted and lit, flowerbeds made, benches set out, flagpoles erected, deer statues set to welcome us home, electric lines run out to the street so we could light the new Holiday Decorations and the list goes on.

    On March 26 we will be celebrating our Silver Anniversary at the Fashion Show and Luncheon with beautiful silver decorations and memory photos of the things we have accomplished. Plan to come and bring your friends to see the fabulous Spring fashions from Dillards and bid on the wonderful Gift Baskets, Designer Handbags and upscale gifts. Tickets cost $35 each and you can ask Julia Watkins for enough to fill your table of ten. Julia’s contact details are 312-4017 or juleswatkins64@gmail.com Raffle tickets are only sold at the Fashion Show so bring along some extra cash. 1/$5, 3/$10, 7/$20 and 20/$50. This sells out quickly, so make your reservations soon!

    Women in History

    Tuesday, February 26 - 10 am

    Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, “First Lady of the World,” forever changed the role of the first lady through her active participation in politics and humanitarian efforts. She was the longest-serving First Lady throughout her husband Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office. Millions of people who never met her felt a bond that verged on kinship. Eleanor’s was a remarkable and inspiring life, a voyage of self-discovery. She triumphed publicly over private despair, transformed from a shy, lonely woman to a national leader in her own right.

    Ruth Pangrace, an actress/educator from Women in History, will bring Eleanor to life on Tuesday, February 26 for the Home and Garden Club. Women in History is an organization based in Cleveland, Ohio and brings dramatic portrayals of notable American women to schools, civic groups, libraries and Chautauqua festivals throughout Ohio and neighboring states. Ruth is a retired teacher and has been part of this group for twenty years, portraying ten different women from our nation’s history.” Ruth is also Jan Malick’s sister, so you won’t want to miss this interesting peek into history. Bring friends, neighbors or anyone interested in seeing history come to life.

    Game Day Fundraiser

    Tuesday, January 22 10 am – 3 pm

    Game Day has been a favorite fundraiser for several years and is a good way to start the new year with friends and neighbors. This is not just for Home and Garden Club members. It is open to anyone in Deercreek – and their friends. Bring your Bridge Group or Canasta Club or Bunco Buddies or Scrabble Junkies or Hand & Foot Fanatics. Do you play Sequence, Five Crowns, Poker, Euchre, Rummikub or Rook? Any game that uses 4 players will work. Or you can put two tables together for a big game of Mexican Train Dominoes! After you gather your group, fill out the registration form and send it to Linda George at 7864 Heather Lake Ct East, along with $25 per person to reserve your space. This includes snacks and lunch at the Club. And we offer a wonderful dessert table bought in by our members.

    There will be two winners in the 50/50 raffle, so it could be your lucky day!

    We will play from 10 am until lunch and then again until 3 pm. Look for the Game Day Form in the Deercreek CC Living newsletter and get it back to her as soon as you know what you plan to play. The deadline is January 18 so we can get everything organized. For questions: Linda George 363-2011 or Carla Hill 363-0838.
