2016-2017 President

Chadia Ghanem

This month’s president’s message basically expresses our ladies’ beauty regimen.

These Beauty Tips were inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s words and actions.

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed.New throw out anybody. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!"

For additional beauty tips, please join us for “The Pampering Spa Event” on Thursday April 13th at Jody Orns’ Salon.This is a special Canon Circle where Sherine Bichara (Skin Care/ Body Care Chemist and founder of L’Alchemist) and Jody Orns (Hairstylist for the WEC Stars) are treating us for a fun evening of skin care, body care, hair care, tips and ideas on how to look our best at all times.

This month’s book club is hosted at Rose White’s home and the ladies are reading Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.  For our new members who enjoy reading interesting books, this is a great opportunity to meet in an intimate setting, sip on delicious libations and have interesting discussions.

Our Social of the Year will be a fun Bowling experience.  None of us are the athletes but we like to play a little, laugh a little and drink nice wine paired with good food.Please join us with your significant other, your kids and let’s create another WEC memory.Please RSVP as soon as possible.Come one, Come all on April 26th and let’s play bowl!

I am looking forward to seeing you at all of these wonderful events and at our signature luncheon on Thursday the 20th.It will be table discussions to highlight YOU- our WEC Member.

“You are special, gifted and unique. You have the power within to rise above any situation. Now use it, share it and be a blessing!” Richardo Housham

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For readers of The Nightingale and Sarah’s Key, inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this remarkable debut novel reveals the power of unsung women to change history in their quest for love, freedom, and second chances.

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France. 

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences.
