Taste of Retreat Coming August 2015!

Save the Date! Friday August 14 -  Sunday August 16 for our Annual Taste of Retreat.

We have a new venue this year!  Our retreat will be hosted at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, VA.  This facility used to be the corporate training headquarters for the Xerox corporation.  It is now one of the largest conference centers in the nation on a beautiful campus.

We have an enormous amount of space available to us so we can really be comfortable and can accommodate everyone that would like to attend.

The cost for the weekend is just $50 per attendee.  You can commute or book a room (available for $109 or $129 per night).  See flyer and registration form for more information.

We "Stepped into Spring"

Spring Fling this year was held on March 21 – the first day of spring.  The room at the Springfield Hilton was brought to life with centerpieces of sparkling spring pumps and flowers on hot pink and lavender tablecloths.  The tables were graced with shoe shaped luggage tag favors that brought surprise and giggles to the attendees.  You won’t lose track of your suitcase with these! 
Before lunch we had time to visit and take photos, meet newer members, enjoy the speaker’s display of Victorian sewing-themed items, and look at the door prizes.  Then we enjoyed an elegant buffet with a selection of meats, cheeses, salads, breads, fruits, and dessert pastries for lunch.  Table conversation at lunch was fun and friendly.  We all had time to reconnect with friends from our own and other neighborhood groups.
