Dolores McNeill

Not everyone gets to celebrate a 90th birthday, but Dolores celebrated hers in style.  She invited her friends and family to a dinner party at the Rotonda Golf and Country Club to help her celebrate. Any donations were to be given to the GFWC Rotonda West Woman's Club Scholarship Fund.  Through her generous gesture a $2000.00 scholarship will be given in her honor.

One of her granddaughters happened to be a friend of a Florida State Junior Woman's Club officer and mentioned to her of her grandmother's birthday and the donations being given to a scholarship fund.  She in turn notified the President of GFWC Florida, who called Dolores to wish her a "Happy Birthday".

  On April 13th, as Mary Powell,Florida President ,was in attendance at the Port Charlotte Woman's Club's 50th Anniversary celebration, Dolores had a chance to meet her and this attached photo was taken.

Spring ESO Luncheon

Within the GFWC Rotonda West Woman's Club there are six ESO Book Clubs.  Each December and April one of the book clubs hosts a luncheon for all book club members.

On Thursday, April 5, 2018 "The Happy Bookers" were the host club.  The luncheon had a theme of "Cherry Blossom Time" and was held at The Hills Golf & Country Club.  Happy Bookers leader Doris Walker and  11 other members had been planning the luncheon for the past eight months which included making centerpieces for tables, providing small token gifts to all guests and coming up with trivia games related to book reading for guests to play.

In addition, each host club provides entertainment after lunch is served. The entertainment provided this time was a very special presentation by Harp player, De Luna.  She told stories of how the Harp originated and then let several gals try their skills so they could get the feel of playing.  Her stories and playing was quite soothing and mystical and enjoyed by all.

The Tonnettes

Recently entertained the residents of Inglenook on Pine Street. They presented a bouquet of flowers to the longtime member of the GFWC Rotonda West Womens Club, Barbara Brandt, on the occasion of her 95th birthday. Barbara was the most avid reader in our ESO groups usually winning the State award for the most books read!! As she aged she used a magnifying glass to she could keep reading. ( We are saddened to say that Barbara has since past. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family)
