Recap of May 2022 Luncheon and Fashion Show

The annual May Luncheon and Fashion Show was a huge success despite the delay of two years due to the dreaded Covid Virus. Over 90 women attended on a lovely Spring Day and enjoyed a delicious lunch and a Soft Surroundings Fashion Show with a “Taste of Paris” theme topped by sparkling flutes of champagne. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge the many FWWC members, as well as others, who made this wonderful afternoon possible. Darlene Williams and her team from the restaurant helped negotiate prices for us, helped set up the room, and served so graciously. We also want to thank Johnny who prepared our lunch and received rave reviews, Kevin Cloud who arranged for transportation to get our guests from the parking lot to the Heritage Room, George Pierfedeici who arranged and played music in keeping with our French theme, Kelley Brewster and her staff who took photos, prepared announcements, and pretty much did anything we needed help with.

Our FWWC, led by President Carol Kardas, stole the show with her welcome speech in perfect French, and her surprise announcement of two very special awards for Dorothy Pfizenmaier and Irene Loretto who have given so unselfishly to our club over the many years.

We also wish to thank our FWWC members Rachel Keyser, Marianne Morrison, Sophie Sefcik, Louise Pierfedeici, Carolyn Blaine, and Dorothy Pfizenmaier who helped with everything from advertising to decorations, to welcoming guests, to making phone calls.

We are so grateful tour six models, Angela Maine, Barbara Smith, Anne Fitzgerald, Carol Verge, Thirza Hyatt, and Susan Landry who looked so lovely and presented the Soft Surroundings clothes so beautifully.

The work of my Co-Chair, Judith Harlow, is indescribable. Her organizational ability and attention to detail truly made this event possible and such an amazing success. It is impossible for me to thank her enough for her hours of effort over so many months.

We are looking forward to an equally successful year ahead for our FWWC. Don’t forget to join in the Fall!   We have big plans for next year and we will be needing help with all our events and committees.

Enjoy the Summer and stay safe.
