Monthly Luncheon - CHINESE NEW YEARS February 12, 2014
Program: Feng Shui Your Home
Jan Templeton, Lifestyle Consultatant will speak on the creation of good energy flow and having a wonderful environment with simple applications of Feng Shui. Feng Sheui is an ancient Chinese art of "the placement of objects." Applying this ancient art in our modern lifestyles to alter our environment can lead to profound changes in the way we live our life.
Jan will explain the basic principles of Feng Shui in simple, common-sence terms relating them to the six key areas of everyday life - wealth and prosperity, love and romance, family harmony, health, career and the workplace, and happiness and well-being.

Reminder to members: After you select “Yes” on the monthly eVite, you must hit “Reply”. Otherwise, your name will not get added to our list. (It only takes a second to look and see that your name does show up on the “Yes” list.)
Also, the Golf and Country Club has requested cash instead of checks, if at all possible, at our monthly luncheons. You may still use your club account. One last note, if you come in after the Reservation table has been vacated, please find Linda Graves or BJ Windrum to pay for your luncheon. Do not pay your server as our records will not be correct. Thanks.
Please note: If you need to cancel your reservation, you must do so by 5 PM of the Monday before the event. If not, you will be charged for your lunch. This is because the chef plans and purchases special meals for us. Please notify Donna Charbonneau as she calls in the count to the kitchen.
