WOMEN’S COLLEGE CLUB OF PRINCETON

PRINCETON NJ 08549
I really want to encourage one and all to come to our final meeting at Windrows on Monday, May 15th. It’s the perfect occasion to bring guests and introduce them to the club. Our treasurer, Nancy Lifland, is concerned that so few have signed up.
In the past we have always been able to accommodate late comers at the door, but we cannot do this May 15th. So please get your reservation to Nancy as soon as possible. And, heavens, let me know if you have questions.
The May meeting is our year-end meeting and you will get the chance to vote on the new slate of club officers and to hear about the Princeton Festival that’s on the horizon. We will remember a year which brought the sad news of the loss of the Ju family home from fire and the death of our beloved member and treasured friend Marge White. And yet we will celebrate the wonderful windfall of the Luna Kayser bequest.
We welcome eleven new members (whom we will “officially” celebrate on June 12th at a tea at Josephine Ondetti’s home). We shall have our scholarship tea at Ginny Mason’s home on Tuesday, May 23rd where we can chat with our scholarship winners and their families. There is a lot going on, so put on your dancing shoes and get ready for May and a wonderful lunch and meeting at Windrows!
