Georgetown, TX (PRWEB) October 31, 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(PRWEB) October 31, 2005 -- Will you be in Georgetown on the first Friday of the month? Would you like to be part of a vital, growing group of women who meet once a month for fun, friendship and personal enrichment? Then Jan Watson and Barbara Chambers invite you to check out the Williamson County Women’s Connection on Friday, November 4 at 11:00 a.m.
The group, which had been meeting the first Friday of each month in the Sun City ballroom, is meeting temporarily at the County Seat Café on the Courthouse Square in Georgetown while the ballroom undergoes renovations. The County Seat, which serves country-style Texas cuisine, caters the luncheons in its upstairs banquet facility.
Jan Watson, who has been involved in the organization’s leadership since she became Vice Chair in 2002, and Barbara Chambers, who has been Jan’s “right-hand man” since 2003, can barely contain their excitement when they talk about the Connection.
“We do so many fun things!” Jan says with a big smile. “We’ve done fashion shows, we had a gourmet chef demonstrate how to make chocolate-covered strawberries, we’ve done home decorating make-overs. We’ve had the Sun City Quilters—that was beautiful, and we do a Country Fair in the fall that’s always lots of fun.”
“But we know that many women have a limited time for lunch,” Barbara interjects, “and we respect that. We do a good job of keeping lunch and the program within 90 minutes.”
The three-part program consists of a musical guest (who will sometimes be the speaker, as well), a special feature, such as a fashion show or a speaker on a special topic of relevance to women, and then a keynote speaker.
“We work hard to get dynamic speakers who will address issues that face today's woman," Jan says. “We’ve had authors, newscasters, teachers, musicians. The women who attend are usually very impressed, very moved by what the speakers have to say.”
"I think women owe it to themselves to be part of a group like this,” agrees Barbara. “It’s one day out of the month when they can take time for themselves to be with other women and build relationships that can enrich their lives and encourage them, to help those who are lonely or hurting. It’s a place where friends want to bring new friends.”
This month, the Women’s Connection will feature a “Days of Gold” theme. Gordon Baker, Chairman of “Main Street Georgetown,” will speak on downtown restoration. Janet Funderburk of Austin will sing, and Grace Pryor from the Cypress area of Houston will be the keynote speaker. Because space is limited, reservations are required. Please call Shirley at 869-8435 or Sharon at 868-5318. If you need childcare, a supervised nursery with qualified workers is available by reservation. Please call Nancy at 864-7686.
