Hi,
I had a nice, long chat with my sister last night. 
 
She is my best friend and I am so lucky to have a sister like her!  She is kind to everyone and well-loved by all.  A gentle soul is what my husband call that type of personality.  I do try to be more like her in that way. 
 
Also, she recently got engaged to a wonderful guy who treats her right.  Even her kids and dog think he's great!
 
Her good friend from college is also getting married.  It will be another big wedding for her.  My sister was a bridesmaid at her first wedding, and she is going to be a bridesmaid again.  The dresses aren't any better this time.
 
#uglydresses
 
I only have one sister, but is is kind of like I have a whole lot them here in our Club.  All of us do!
 
That is the great thing about being a part of a club like this.  I have met so many wonderful, bright, kind, friendly ladies.  I always have someone to turn to, whatever I need. 
 
There are lawyers and real estate agents that I have used.  I have gotten referrals to hair stylists, clothing boutiques, restaurants, insurance agents, and more.
 
Whenever you are doing business, whether it is getting something new or deciding to shop around, remember to ask our Club ladies.  We have so many talented and highly skilled members and you can be sure that you will be treated like family by your sisters from our Club.
 
If you would like to find out more about who does what, check the end section of the monthly newsletter or look online here.
 
If you want to make it easy to find you and your business, you can put your business card at the back of each monthly newsletter, in the annual print directory coming out in October, and on our website for only $99 for the whole year!  You can upgrade to a half-page for $249.  It's one of the best bargains around, and it supports our charities.  Contact our fabulous PR Chair, Sharon Jones, at pr@pontevedawomansclub.com or online to get your ad. 
 
I'd love to see every one of our professional ladies represented there, so our ad section can be a go-to resource for our all of our members.
 
I'm shortening this weekly message so you just get what is going on this week.  What do you think?  Does that make it easier to focus on the here and now?  For our full calendar, check our newsletter, put together by the amazing Susan Hardy. 
 
 
This week:
 
Wednesday, Sept. 19th at midnight is the deadline to register for the Sept. 24th general meeting at Sawgrass Golf Clubhouse at 11:00.  Register here or email programs@pontevedrawomansclub.com
 
Raffle Tickets:
This gorgeous Lagos bracelet from Underwoods is a fantastic prize.  If you haven't bought tickets yet, please email Nancy Marsh at Waysandmeans@pontevedrawomansclub.com or text her at 517-927-4322 and she will get your tickets to you.  You can also buy them at the September general meeting.
 
Thanks,

Hi!
 
I hope you enjoyed the short work week.
 
Mine felt looong somehow.
 
I spent some time in the chair.
 
(not on the couch, though some people might think I should, lol!)
 
I realized that what I need is a superstar hair stylist.
 
Any recommendations?
 
Our Club members always seem to know the right people for whatever you need.
 
Did you get some raffle tickets yet? 
 
Time is running out to sell them.  I really hope that all of our members can find a way to buy, or sell, $100 worth of raffle tickets each. 
That would mean so many thousands of dollars raised for our charities!  And this gorgeous bracelet from Underwoods is a fantastic prize. 
 
Please email Nancy Marsh at Waysandmeans@pontevedrawomansclub.com or text her at 517-927-4322 and she will get your tickets to you.
 
One last quick note...
 
If you haven't renewed your membership yet, time is running out!  If you don't renew by the end of September, you won't get any more Club updates after that!
 
Our first general meeting is September 24th, 11am, at Sawgrass golf clubhouse.  You can bring your renewal cheque for $60 with you. 
Thanks,

Ti Haroldsonn

Hi!
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
 
I'm going to take a day off from unpacking and go to the beach!  I hope you do too.  I hope you are laying on the beach or by the pool with a cold drink in hand as you are reading this. 
 
Sunday with Ti is the #1 preferred beach read of PVWC members.  Or at least it should be.
 
And if you read this last week, I can now tell you, they DO make digital violins!  One of the other kids on the softball team plays violin (or her older sister, or something like that) and her dad told me about them.
 
If you are lost by the above, and have some FOMO, read this.
 
Our Club is busy gearing up for our Underwood’s Event and Raffle.  Could you help us out just a little?  We need you to take $100 worth of raffle tickets and sell collect donations for them.  $20 each or 3/$50 is the recommended donation.
 
There are some rules that say we can't sell them, just accept donations.  Similar rules won't let us do it online, either.  Because we are a 501C3 organization these tickets are tax deductible. 
 
Please email Nancy Marsh at Waysandmeans@pontevedrawomansclub.com or text her at 517-927-4322 and she will get your tickets to you. You sell your tickets, get the purchaser’s information on the ticket, and bring the money and the information to the September 24th meeting. 
 
Easy, right?
 
Have you seen how gorgeous this bracelet is?  It's 18kt gold by Lagos and you could wear it anywhere, anytime.  Daytime with jeans, stacked with a gold bangle.  Nighttime with a cocktail dress, and throw on a tennis bracelet too.  ANYWHERE, I tell you.
 
 
ALL of the funds we raise goes to our charities:
BEAM (Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry) 
SAYS (St. Augustine Youth Services) 
FSDB (Florida School for the Deaf and Blind)
Betty Griffin Center 
Expanding Your Horizons
 
The more tickets we sell, the bigger the cheque that we can give them.  Come and celebrate your raffle ticket success on October 4th from 6-8pm at Underwood’s of Ponte Vedra for the Lagos/PVWC cocktail reception.  You can bring your friends.  
 
10% of all Lagos sales that night and October 5th and 6th will benefit our charities. Please RSVP to: waysandmeans@pontevedrawomansclub.com so Underwood’s can be sure to have enough appetizers and beverages.
Thanks,

Ti Haroldsonn

Hi,
 
I finally made it on a Sunday!  It might be Monday by the time you are reading this, because it will probably be sent close to 10pm, but it STILL COUNTS  as Sunday!
 
It's a lot to keep together after a full work week and then a busy weekend with my family, which included not just unpacking (nearly there!  only one bathroom plus my office to go!), but shopping for a piano. 
 
Who knew that the big thing now is digital pianos? 
 
Maybe they'll have digital violins next. 
 
For all I know, they already do!
 
What you really need to know is how much fun we had on Thursday night at the Social Kick-off, formerly known as the New and Prospective Member Event, now with a catchier name which may or may not be related to football season.
 
It was a phenomenal turnout, thanks to the PR efforts of Sharon Jones who was also our hostess for the evening, opening up her home to all of us. 
 
THANK YOU SHARON!
 
The board caters this event themselves, bringing all the wine and home made goodies. I don't know who brought the antipasto skewers, but they were the big hit of the buffet! 
 
We had at least 30 prospective members turn out, but it could have been twice that.  I am a poor judge of crowd size.  So be prepared for lots of new faces at our September meeting and don't forget to introduce yourself and make sure they really feel the Southern hospitality, or Northern transplant hospitality, or whichever flavor of hospitality you have to offer.
 
I am really excited about the new Club year!   Register now for the September (or ALL) General Meeting on the 24th at Sawgrass Golf Clubhouse.
 
Thanks,

Ti Haroldsonn

Hi!
It looks like this is turning into Mondays with Ti.  I'd better start putting it on my calendar to set it up on Fridays!
For how long can I use moving as an excuse?
On the bright side, I found my entire kitchen counter this weekend, for the first time since we arrived.
It was so exciting I took pictures!
And sent them. 
To multiple friends.
I also got started on testing out a newly-created recipe that I plan to bring to the Social Kick-off this Thursday at Sharon's house.
Yes, THIS Thursday!
Can you believe that it is here already? I bet Sharon can't believe it either. Don't forget to thank her for opening up her home to us.  It allows us to put on this event at NO COST to attendees.  If you haven't already, round up all of your non-member friends and bring them to our event where they can learn all about the club. Sharon's address is:
3049 Cypress Creek Dr. E
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082
 
Here's all the official info:

Ponte Vedra Woman’s Club Social Kick-off, August 23rd
The Ponte Vedra Woman’s Club is celebrating new and potential members on August 23 (Thursday) from 6:00 until 7:30 pm. The ladies will gather at a member’s home to learn more about the club and the local charities they support. All ladies are welcome. If you are already a member, please bring a friend or friends with you. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. There is no cost to attend this event, but if you are an ongoing member and would like to contribute a bottle of wine, it would be greatly appreciated. The board caters this event themselves with home made goodies! They are not to be missed.

Hello!
 
Are you having a great summer?  I hope so.
 
I need you to make up for mine.  Because moving is a drag and I have spent every weekend unpacking, with no end in sight. 
 
I don't want to open another box!  LOL, but I have to in order to find all my things.  I need some of them, and have to get rid of the rest.  I'm trying hard to declutter!
 
We are gearing up for a new PVWC Club year so I'm trying this new thing.  Every Sunday I am going to send out a weekly update of what's going on with the Club.  It will have reminders of any upcoming deadlines or events. 
 
But wait, you say?  It's not Sunday!  You are correct.  So I'm cheating a little.  Here's a sundae:
Now it's Sundae with Ti! Because I am still figuring this thing out. 
 
We are trying really hard to strike the right balance between communicating enough and sending too many emails. 
 
You will get:
this weekly email
a monthly newsletter
a monthly general meeting invitation with an RSVP reminder and an event reminder
invitations to other Club events (possibly with reminders)
 
You can give me your feedback by replying to this message.  Is it too much?  Not enough? I really will respond, too!
 
Thanks,
 
Ti Haroldsonn

Hi Ladies-
 
Get your calendars out!  We have so much going on right now with our Club, it's pretty amazing.  Just like all of you!
 
There's a lot here.  Scroll to the bottom for the summary.
 
You can shop and support our charities both this week and next week.  So get your wallet ready, too, lol!
 
Tonight, treat yourself to a makeover from the Trish McEvoy artists at Bluemercury in Sawgrass Village. 
 
It's not too late to make an appointment!  Call 904-280-2115.  They can squeeze you in, sometime between 4 and 8pm.
 
They are also having a draw for an awesome gift basket. 
 
I could use that. 
 
Not really.  I would use that. 
 
I have too much makeup already, but that has never stopped me from buying something new! 
 
Tonight will be no exception.
 
We'll hang around and get drinks and nibbles at Nona Blue, right across the mall.
 
 
Next week, Wednesday November 15th, Katherine Way is allowing US to be a part of their private shopping event.
 
10% of proceeds will go to PVWC, Gabriel House, and First Coast Women’s Services.
 
There will be refreshments and beverages along with FIRST PEEK at their clearance items for their upcoming warehouse sale.  WAY before anyone else has even seen it. 
 
The shopping event is 4 - 8 pm at their corporate office.  Tell your friends!!
 
Address for the 15th is:
 
11653 Central Pkwy
Jacksonville FL 32224
 
I was wondering where the heck that is, so I looked it up on the map.  It's right by I-295 and Beach Blvd., so it looks easy to get to.
 
The clothes are super cute.  Most of them are UPF 50+ and there's a whole golf collection as well as dresses, shorts, and more in fun prints and activewear fabrics.
 
 
 
In between those two events is our November General Meeting on the evening of Monday the 13th at Lulu's Waterfront Grille. 
 
Put $10 in the kitty, and order your own supper.  And drinks, too!  They always take great care of us. 
 
Don't forget a sweater because sometimes we are seated outside on the patio.
 
Don't forget your wrapped Angel Gifts for the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind if you took an angel from the tree in October.  Remember to put your Angel ID number on it.  If you are not able to attend the meeting, please call Sherry Gallo at 547-2942 to coordinate pick up.
 
RSVP for the meeting by E-vite to pay at the door, or go here to pay online with PayPal.
 
 
 
 
We are less than one month away from the Oh, What Fun! Holiday Event at Sawgrass Village on Saturday, December 2nd.  Our Spirit of Giving raffle is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need your help! 
 
You should get an e-mail invitation today to sign up at Signup Genius.  Or you can click the link to sign up for the holiday event.
 
We need everyone in the club to come out and work for at least one shift.  We need so may volunteers!  What is on the sign-up page is the minimum that we need to make the event successful.  If there is a spot you want, and it's full, (or you just don't want to do it online) e-mail event chair Teri Ellis at teriellispv@gmail.com or call her at 904-945-5372 and she will work it out!
 
Props to Teri for all of her hard work setting this event up last year and chairing it again this year!
 
But wait, there's more!
 
Like my infomercial style?
 
Teri is having a cocktail party and planning session for all of the volunteers at her house on Thursday, November 16th at 6:30 pm.  Bring any able-bodied adult that you can get to help you out and volunteer!  It's open to everyone we know, not just members. 
 
Teri's address:
332 Ponte Vedra Blvd.
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082
 
Whew, that's a lot!  Thanks for hanging in there with me!
 
[I learned that this, below, stands for 'Too Long, Didn't Read' and it's cyberslang for "just tell me the highlights."  We used to call it the Reader's Digest version.  Or the Executive Summary.]
 
 
TL:DR:  
Tonight!  Bluemercury for makeovers:  call 904-280-2115 for an appointment if you don't have one.
Mon. Nov. 13th, 6:00:  General Meeting at Lulu's Waterfront.  RSVP here or by e-vite.  Bring Angel Gifts.

Hi Everyone!
 
Did you have a fun Halloween?  I have been eating way too much leftover candy.  It's a good thing we keep it locked in the freezer.
 
My little one is getting bigger.  No more princesses or kitty costumes.  This year she was the Grim Reaper.  Kinda funny-sad for me.
 
It's nice that the weather has cooled off and we didn't have to run the a/c on Halloween like last year!
 
It's also a good time to fire up the oven.  Or the crock-pot.   Or any other appliance that you use for making food.
 
Because you need to make something to bring to the Member Potluck this Saturday.  I can't wait to see all the yummy food that everyone brings.
 
Last year someone brought amazing peanut butter brownie-type bars.  I don't know who it was, but if you are reading this, I hope they will appear on the buffet again!
 
We also need some helpers, for set-up before and clean-up after.  If you could pitch in just a little, it will make for quick work for everyone.  Sue Hartman has generously opened up her home to hostess the party, so we need to hold up our end.  The party starts at 6:30.  If you can come at 5:30 or even 6, or plan on staying a bit late to tidy up afterwards, that will help a lot!
 
If you want to help, please e-mail me.  If you want to attend and didn't get or somehow lost the e-vite, you can also e-mail me.  Or phone me.  Or text.  Whatever, it all works. 
 
If you haven't opened up your e-vite yet, you might get a call from me.  So even if you can't come, please RSVP so I know the invitation isn't in your SPAM folder.
 
 
 
If you haven't made an appointment at Bluemercury yet, there is still time. 
 
Call 904-280-2115 to make an appointment with one of 6 Trish McEvoy makeup artists who will spend time with you personally on holiday make-up looks, or whatever it is that you need. 
 
A portion of all Trish McEvoy sales that evening will be donated to the club.  It's not too early to start thinking about your Christmas list! 
 
Or treat yourself. 
 
There's some cool stuff in the Trish McEvoy line, including a palette that you can completely customize with your own mix of powders, whether they are eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, setting powder, anything!  There's even a cute little case to hold the palette plus the other goodies you need for your whole face. 
 
Bluemercury is in Sawgrass Village, btw, in case you didn't know.  It's kind of across from Nona Blue, on the corner.  If you went to the Holiday Event last year, we had our hospitality booth set up in front of what is now their door. 
 
Don't forget that this year's Holiday Event is on Saturday, December 2nd!
 
I hope to see as many of you as possible this Saturday night!

Hi Everyone! 
 
Did you have a great weekend?
 
We tried to go to the beach. 
 
Brrr!  The water has gotten cold faster than I remember last year.  Or maybe it's just because it was low tide?  Isn't it warmer at high tide?  Does somebody know this?
 
So we went to the [heated!] pool instead.  :D 
 
Then I came home and bought my ticket to the Pusser's Wine Event.  Do you have yours yet?  It's this Thursday, and it's only $25 for 2 drinks plus appetizers.  They put out an amazing spread, buffet-style, for us last year when we held Trivia night there.  If you haven't eaten there before, this is a great way to try a little bit of everything that they offer, and discover how delicious their food is. 
 
Also how to get into the place, because I always see the patio from the road but the entrance is a bit hidden, but easy to find once you actually turn in.  Maybe we'll have some nice cool weather and get to check the patio out?
 
They also have a pretty good, by which I mean amazing, cocktail selection.  I don't know if their famous Painkiller (available in levels 1 to 3,or maybe 4?) will be part of our selection, but if you have someone else to drive you home, then I highly recommend trying one of those.
 
If you don't have your ticket yet, get one here.  http://www.pontevedrawomansclub.com/EventsCalendar.html
 
Do it right now, and you can sneak it in under the wire.  Before you go to bed Tuesday night, at the VERY very latest.  And if you end up bringing an extra pal along, we will not turn him or her away - we will accept payment at the door.  If you want to pay at the door, e-mail waysandmeans@pontevedrawomansclub.com to let them know, so they can include you in their headcount.
 
It's also your last chance to contribute to our basket for the cancer society auction.  Just bring your stuff with you Pusser's and Sharon Jones will collect it.  The items in the basket (ok, a bucket, really) will be donated to kids undergoing cancer treatment to keep them occupied while they are in the hospital undergoing treatments. 
 
I can't think of anything sadder than a kid with cancer.
 
Or anyone more deserving of our donations. 
 
Our basket bucket has an arts and crafts theme, so please open your hearts and wallets and let's fill it up to overflowing for them!
 
IF you can't make it to Pusser's (now I'm sad for you, because you will miss out on such a nice time hanging out with the ladies) you can contact Sharon Jones to make arrangements for getting the items to her. 
 
Thanks a ton to our Ways and Means VPs, Cindey Nordman and Nancy Marsh, who put this whole event together, and to our PR Chair, Nicole Williams, for the awesome poster and PR work on promoting it. 
 
Don't forget these other fun events coming up!
