Fall East Lyme/Niantic Auxiliary Meeting
Dear East Lyme Auxiliary members –
Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9th 7:oopm at the East Lyme Police Department on Main Street in Niantic – across from the theater – the same place we had our rained out McCook Picnic in June. It is a nice facility and has abundant and well-lit parking. It should be a fun and informative evening. We’ll start with a report on our success with the Celebrity Author Luncheon and then Julia Balfour, graphic designer extraordinaire will be our guest. She is the person who designed the new Child & Family website. She will share with us her vision for that and the ways in which she envisions that it will promote Child & Family to a larger audience. She will also discuss the use of Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. I have heard Julia speak twice. She is dynamic and has a ton of interesting information to share. It is a great opportunity to learn about social media from a true expert. Even if you aren’t into these things yourself, I think you will find it fascinating to learn more about them. Bring along a friend! After her presentation we will have time to socialize and share some treats around the round table.
On another note Jane McLane will be making calls to sign up workers for Interior Inspirations. You should be receiving the Interior Inspirations brochure early next week. The East Lyme shift is Friday afternoon, October 26th from 12:30 to 4pm. We need to provide a total of eight workers. Workers will need to purchase a one day pass. Group sale tickets are available for groups of ten or more. Tickets sold by the group are $20 as opposed to the $25 regular advance ticket price. You do not need to attend with others in the group – rather just purchase your ticket as a part of the group. Jane will take your requests to have your ticket purchased as a part of the group whether or not you are a Friday worker. The event looks to be a fun one. I think you will want to attend. Purchasing a group ticket is the most economical way to do so. What would be the very best is for you to call Jane to reserve your group ticket and/or to volunteer to work on Friday afternoon. Three of the workers will be selling tickets. The other five will be stationed throughout the designer vignettes. Please give Jane a call at 860-739-5167 or email her at email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing you on October 9th for Julia Balfour’s presentation and at Interior Inspirations on the 26th, 27th or 28th. ~ Sally
