July News

Dear Members,

The very hot weather this week lets us know that summer is here with a vengeance. Vacations do, too; Sarah was away for a couple of weeks and Nancy is leaving soon. In between we’ve been working steadily to launch the American Girl Fashion Show ticket sales by the beginning of August. We’re hoping that by starting earlier and by using more electronic communication, we can earn more for our contribution to LPCH. Our website will be up later this week and yesterday we launched our Facebook page. Please visit  and “Like” it and “Share” it with friends and relations. Information spreads geometrically on Facebook as each friend shares with her friends.

We have had several committee meetings at Nancy’s and have women working in many areas. We’re hoping that many of our members will come to the September General Meeting at Lucie Stern Center in Palo Alto on Tuesday, September 16th at 1 PM and help with some of the AG projects like labeling and cutting the centerpiece skirts. We will have something for everyone to help with.

Before that, on Saturday, August 23rd, we have been invited to participate in a special day at Allied Arts. We will have tables with our cookbooks, pillows, Restaurant with Heart information, Beargrams and  tickets for AGFS. We’ll need several shifts of helpers so please call us if you can help. Many other guilds will participate and it will be fun to see what they are doing.

This week Restaurants is at the Iron Gate in Belmont, a favorite and great supporter of LPCH. As it’s today and tomorrow, check our website for more details. While you are on the website, look for the wonderful photos that Erika Crowley has posted. It’s fun to see all of our friends and activities. Also under membership, we finally have a new form for new members and have already recruited some from the American Girl project.

See you in August!

Sarah and Nancy
