Socially Speaking: March/April events

Please be sure to keep up with the RSVP dates so you don’t miss something that you were really looking forward to participating in. With that being said, here is what’s coming up….


Fahrenheit Ceramic Studio (RSVP by 2/15) 8 South Broadway. Pitman

If you are not familiar with this event, you select a piece of ceramics of your choice to work on, and add a $4.00 studio fee which includes the painting and firing of your piece. Each attendee is responsible to pay for their choice of ceramics as well as the $4.00 fee. You can bring in snacks and beverages. This was a lot of fun when we went in the fall and was requested by several of the club members. Thursdays are half-price studio fees from 6-10PM for customers 21 and up. Their normal fee is $8.00 per person. The items will be ready to be picked up the following week. Last time, I picked up everyone’s items and am anticipating doing the same this time so that we don’t all have to go back down. As an aside, there is a FABULOUS cookie place across the street called CRAVE if you chose to pick up a treat for yourself! As of this time, there are 12 people who are interested in going.

THURSDAY, MARCH 24 @ 7:00 Crochet Night led by Joann Keefe

We will continue making granny square blankets under the direction of Joann and her assistants; Debbie H., and Margie M. If you are interested in learning to crochet, you are welcome to join us.

(Several additional sessions have been scheduled as well.)

We will be discussing, The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The bride ‧ The plus one ‧ The best man ‧ The wedding planner ‧ The bridesmaid ‧ The body — On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.
But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.
And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

TUESDAY, JUNE 14 End of Year Installation/Dinner

We are currently working on this and will let you know when definite plans have been made and a venue finalized.

Please be sure to check your e-mail often as we hope to have other “Pop-Up Events” to share with you.

As always, If you have a talent/hobby that you would like to share with the group, please let Holly, Margie, or Jody know. We would love to incorporate the talents from our club sisters into a social event that we can all learn and enjoy.
