Around Town – November 28, 2012
Our Holiday Season is now well on its way. Thanksgiving, a day to count our blessings and eat like it was our last meal! Just a memory and even the leftovers are all gone. For some, thanksgiving day was now also the first day for the traditional Christmas Shopping to begin, not for me, but listening to the news it seems as though many took advantage of the many bargains and sales.
El Monte Women’s Club will hold their monthly business, luncheon and program meeting on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at the El Monte Community Center, 3130 N. tyler Avenue, El Monte, California. The Business meeting will be called to order by President Lorene Gutierrez at 11:00 AM. Chairman Eva Stoltz, who is also the current recipient, will conduct the vote for the new “Kindness Angel”. The club Kindness Angel must have been a member for at least one year and the period considered is from January 1 through December 31, 2012. A Kindness Angel must have shown acts of kindness, as a general personal characteristic, both as a club member and in her daily personal life. A program of interest to everyone will be presented by Mr. George Gaunty on Crime Victimization Prevention. A serious topic, Mr. Gaunty offers an entertaining, humorous talk while offering life saving information. Luncheon Hostess will be Mary Jo Kolakoski and the committee: Rita Cazares, Olga Gutierrez, Esthela Siegrist and Carmen Simons.
