Suday with Ti Aug 26

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. 
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.

There is supposed to be a line here.  It only shows up in e-mail, though, and not on blog posts.
Advertise with PVWC!
October 1 deadline. You can get a business-card sized ad for only $100 and it will go in our printed directory, on our website, and in each monthly newsletter for an entire year. October 1st is the deadline to be included in the print directory. Advertise your business or just show your support for the club by printing your best wishes. Contributions go towards our charities. Bring a cheque to any meeting or event or pay online here, then e-mail your ad to pr@pontevedrawomansclub.com
Membership Renewals Overdue
If you haven't yet renewed your PVWC membership, it's not too late! You have three options: Go online to www.pontevedrawomansclub.com. Login (below the yellow hibiscus, the login link may be on the right) using the e-mail address where you received this message. Use your existing password, or if you haven't set one yet, use password PVWC2018 (you'll be asked to set a new password). Look just below the big yellow hibiscus picture and click on 'Your Profile.' If you see 'renew membership' then your membership is lapsed. Click it to renew and follow the instructions. Bring a cheque for $60.00 to your next PVWC event and give it to Sharon Jones, or someone at the door. Mail your cheque to: PVWC Membership, PO Box 957, Ponte Vedra Beach FL, 32004.
RSVP for a full year of meetings at once!  (Or as many as you like!) 

Registration is open now for ALL general meetings for the 2019/19 Club year. 
Instead of remembering to RSVP and send in your payment each month for the General Meetings, you can RSVP and pay for them all at once. Or as many as you can plan ahead for, or just skip the one you know you'll miss.  Even if you will miss one or two, any unused funds will go into our charitable donations, so it's all for a good cause and it saves you time. Click here to go to the registration page.  You will need to register for each one and select "invoice my account."  Then click on "Your Profile" near the top right of any page, and your balance and a link to PAY NOW will be front and center.
