TWOQC hosts membership brunch

Janice Pell

The annual Membership Appreciation Brunch for The Women of Quail Creek will take place on Monday, October 26 in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom. The festivities will start at 11:00 a.m. All members of the club and their guests are invited. Quail Creek women who have not previously attended a TWOQC function that are interested in joining the club are also invited. Always a favorite and popular event, it promises to be a fun day.

The menu will feature the Quail Creek Grilled Chicken Salad with grapefruit segments, sliced apples, berries, Mandarin oranges and jicama served with raspberry vinaigrette and rolls. And, of course, an elegant dessert.

After brunch, entertainment will be provided by the Amber Norgaard Duo, a crowd-pleasing local singing group. Amber is a singer/songwriter with an impressive vocal range and a musical repertoire that crosses many genres. From pop to honky-tonk and ballads, she sings it all. She also plays piano and guitar. A tireless performer, she tours nationally and has been the opening act for many musicians including Judy Collins and Kenny Loggins. She believes that “music transcends language and cultural barriers—” and is a form of communication that speaks to everyone.

TWOQC memberships for 2016 will be sold just prior to the brunch. Annual dues for club membership are $25. Membership benefits include regular monthly programs on topics of interest to women. At each program a number of door prizes are given out. In addition to the membership brunch, the club also has two luncheons each year, plus a field trip in March. All events are free to club members with the exception of the luncheons and the field trip. Those renewing memberships or joining that day will have dues paid through December 2016.

TWOQC offers many opportunities for women to get involved in service projects such as the annual baby shower held for mothers-to-be in the Armed Forces. It is also a wonderful way to meet other women in the community.

There is no charge for the brunch for members. Cost for guests will be $15.50. Reservations are required and ladies will need a brunch ticket to attend. Reservations can obtained starting at 5:30 p.m., just prior to TWOQC’s September 28 meeting. Those wishing to be seated together with friends should make reservations at the same time.
