Bunko Night was a Blast!

Hi Friends!

In case you didn't make it to the party Tuesday night, I have posted a few pictures for you. If you did get to be there, I'm sure you will enjoy a few memories of a great time together.  Janie Smith and Leslie Western hosted a delightful night of fun, food, and prizes to a substantial crowd.  There were 50 women playing Bunko from one end of the foyer...

... the other!

These pictures are deceptively quiet.  I assure you this bunch was anything but quiet.

Notice anything funny about Vonda's name tag?

Jan has so many shiny hearts on her sweater!

Paula got really creative with her stickers.

This group is taking a breather between rounds while Nancy passes out stickers to the winning partners. Whew!  Who knew Bunko was so much exercise?

The stickers were VERY important because each one indicated a win.  When all was said and done, the prizes were awarded to those with the highest scores, second place and "the booby prize" in each of the three sections. (I won't mention who beat me out of that last category by one little sticker!)

Congratulations to all of the winners who received gift cards from a variety of stores and restaurants around town:

Georgia Dodson
Sue Taylor
Susan Harris
Bev Zimmerebner
Sarah Wright
Paula Schwartzmann
Jobina Pratt
Heather Slay 
Stephanie Westerman

And many thanks to those who brought the delicious snacks.

In case you would like to thank Janie and Leslie, feel free to leave your words of appreciation in the comments below.  I'll make sure they see them!  

So what's next on our social calendar? tell me!  The Women's Leadership Team is looking for a few "Party Girls" to plan another fun night during the next quarter.  Please let one of us know your ideas for getting together Just for the Fun of it! I've listed our contact information at the end of the post.

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Friends!

The new year is well underway.  The Wednesday morning and Thursday evening bible studies have begun along with the newest addition to the line up for Women of Lake Valley, Discover Your God-given gifts.  The current class is full, but we plan to continue bringing this life-equipping class to ALL of Lake Valley as time and opportunity presents itself.

AND... a Bunko Night?  Yeah!  Tuesday, February 5 starting at 6:30 in the downstairs lobby of Lake Valley.  Janie and Leslie have planned a fun night that includes food and PRIZES!  Please add your name to the sign up at the information booth any Sunday before the 5th so that our two hostesses know how many to plan for.  All of the details can be found under "Headlines", in the e-mail newsletter every Thursday.

Thanks to Janie Smith and Leslie Western for planning this "Girls Night Out" event!

I would love to connect with some of you who enjoy paper crafting.  Any one interested? Click on the link below for a very clever Valentine idea:

Amber is one of my favorite designers in the paper crafting world.  E-mail web links or pictures of any great crafting ideas you have and I will happily post them for all to see! Maybe our next "Girl's Night Out" event will be for us crafty girls!

Did you know that Judy Scott, a long time member of Lake Valley, was named Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the Year?  In addition to her busy work schedule, Judy organizes the coverage for our Information Booth at Lake Valley.  Congratulations, Judy and thanks for letting your light shine in our business community.

Remember this:

 Have a great week!Thanks for stopping by,Suzanne
