On Wednesday, December 13th, the Newcomers met for their monthly luncheon at Hideaway Beach Club. After the social, the luncheon began with announcements and welcoming three new members followed by a delicious, plated lunch. Following the dessert, private chef Valerie Maillard entertained the ladies sharing her holiday tips, traditions, and a wonderful recipe; giving the ladies a colorful, culinary visual of the traditional holiday in France spent with family. She graciously answered several questions from the audience. The luncheon concluded with the traditional sponsors’ prizes, making several ladies extremely happy.
