We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to hold our March Membership Meeting at the home of Earlene Garvey in Colleyville! The sun was bright, the temperature was comfortable and the food catered by Market Street was delicious, especially the lemon bars!!! Many thanks to Mary MacDowell and Jane Wood for coordinating the food and location and to Fonda Martin for the donation of the valet parking service and door prizes. Congratulations to the door prize winners, Lynda Railsback, Mia Poorman and Lee Koch.
Twelve (12) guests and 35 SOS members witnessed the presentation of a $75,000 check to SafeHaven and learned that SOS will be outfitting every bed in both shelters with new sheets, pillows and pillow cases. Well done, Celebrity Chefs 2012 committee!! Mary Lee Hafley inspired us as always with her heart felt message. She informed us that women from every single city in Tarrant County sought out the services from SafeHaven last year. The victims of domestic violence are in every one of our communities and thanks to the generosity of concerned people like us in SOS, SafeHaven is able to reach out to them in many ways.
After the meeting concluded, three(3) of our 12 guests decided to join SOS and another guest was going to mail her membership in!! I’m looking forward to getting them plugged into all the great work SOS does.
