Some months have already been selected but we are still seeking a few more volunteers or group photos from the same Killington organization. ONLY PARTICIPATING VOLUNTEERS ARE INVITED TO THIS LUNCHEON. The purpose of the meeting is to finalize all the monthly themes, costumes and dates for the photo shoots. Please RSVP to new club member Lizzie Carosh at [email protected] ASAP. She is heading up this project and providing refreshments for this luncheon meeting.

Into to Bunco, Thurs. Oct. 20 6:30 p.m.:

Bunco is a dice game, traditionally played with at least 12 players who are divided into 4 players at each table. Players change tables after every round so it is a very social game, often resulting in raucous outbursts! No skill is involved - it's all about rolling dice with the help of lady luck. We will learn how to play bunco and see if there is enough interest in holding another bunco night on a larger scale. As this is a member only event, members will receive an invitation separately with all the details.

Summer 2016 Newsletter

As we look forward to the new year, we have lots of exiting news to announce!  

If you missed the April 21, 2016 meeting at the Library, the members voted to have the club rebranded as the Killington Women's Club. Upon further discussion at the May 12, 2016 Annual Meeting, members voted to modify the name to the Greater Killington Women's Club to appeal to a broader geographical membership. Please bear with us during the transition period, as there are administrative matters to manage.
 
We have several new members of the Board who will bring fresh ideas for fun events and fundraising. Our new Board is as follows:
 
President - Janina Curtis
Vice President - Lisa Davis Lewis
Corresponding Secretary (Sunshine) - Jeannette MacKenzie
Treasurer - Kristin Alf
Hospitality Chair - Theresa Tool
Publicity & Membership Chair - Diane Stockton-Breese
Historian Chair - Jennifer Iannantuoni
Recording Secretary - OPEN 
Program Chair - OPEN 
 
Many thanks to those who stepped down from years of service on the Board:  Carla Meola who served as President for two years; past President Deanne Fitzpatrick, and past Treasurer Pat Linnemayr. Currently there are vacancies on the Board; please consider volunteering a year term to share your ideas and help in organizing events.

    A Letter From The President

    Happy New Year everyone! I hope each of you enjoyed time with family and friends over the holiday season.  

    As 2014 begins I reflect on what lies ahead and how I can be intentional about achieving my resolutions. I use January 1st as a chance to think about setting goals and include something that is silly as well as something that takes more planning. Last year, I wanted to brush my teeth longer, the silly/fun goal. My other goal was to be more physically flexible; this goal took more planning, more yoga and more stretching.  I feel mildly successful and will be carrying this goal over into 2014. I am not able to quite touch my hands to the ground in a forward fold yet but I bought my punch pass to Bikram yoga last week! My fun goal for 2014 is to include 2 SWC book club meetings. I have continued to find reasons to not be reading in my free time and setting my sights on 2014 book club will help me be more intentional with that free time.
     
    What goals or resolutions do you have for 2014? How can our club support your resolutions? Our club was founded on the premise of Killington women gathering socially and connecting to our community. Our Ladies Night Out and upcoming January Party are great examples of our social connections.  We fundraise all season long through our holiday bake sale, special events as well as support local organizations like the the food shelf.  I hope to see you next Thursday for our holiday party - please remember to bring a canned good and yankee swap item.  I look forward to hearing your resolutions for 2014 and enjoying an evening out with friends. 
     
    Happy 2014,
    Deanne Fitzpatrick
    SWC President
