The Board of Directors has two key missions to accomplish this year - grow our relationship with PACE Center for Girls and grow our membership. We’re trying to see how many can involve wine, either directly or indirectly. So far we are doing pretty well. November will be all about PACE - we will be hearing from Alex Stark, Associate Executive Director at our November 15thluncheon and we will be gathering on the PACE campus for our Cannon Circle November 30 - wine will be served! While I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Shirley Cannon, she sure started a great tradition.
At our most recent Board of Directors meeting, the board decided to offer a complimentary lunch to a prospective new member. This is a great opportunity to forward the luncheon email invitation over to a friend who you would believe would make a great new WEC member. If you have anyone that would like to register for the lunch as a new guest please email email@example.com with their contact information.
The small print: This is for women who have not previously attended a luncheon and will be limited to a maximum of 4 complimentary guests per meeting, excluding the holiday party.
Speaking of Holiday Parties - This year’s will be on Friday, December 8 and feature our signature gift exchange - with a twist. Please be sure to have your name on your gift and you’ll keep it with you at your table until the swapping, uh, I mean mayhem, starts.
Until the next glass of wine,
WEC 2017-2018 Officers

November Book Club
The Cooking Gene by Michael Twitty.
A renowned culinary historian offers a fresh perspective on our most divisive cultural issue, race, in this illuminating memoir of Southern cuisine and food culture that traces his ancestry—both black and white—through food, from Africa to America and slavery to freedom.
Southern food is integral to the American culinary tradition, yet the question of who "owns" it is one of the most provocative touch points in our ongoing struggles over race. In this unique memoir, culinary historian Michael W. Twitty takes readers to the white-hot center of this fight, tracing the roots of his own family and the charged politics surrounding the origins of soul food, barbecue, and all Southern cuisine.
