A group of wine enthusiasts joined Nadia de Lemeny, owner of Corks & Class, to taste seven different wines from around the world (none from Italy and France). Thank you, Elena Shashkova, for opening up your beautiful home and thank you, Barry O'Laughlin, for organizing the event. The delicious cheese and charcuterie perfectly complimented the wines.

Thirty members and their guests gathered at the Weston Art and Innovation Center for a potluck dinner to celebrate friendship. Jan Feldman, Jana Hinton, Jessica Pohl, and Francesca Sibble transformed the room so it was warm and welcoming. They even arranged for a bartender.

We had a crisp fall day for our Welcome Back Coffee. Jan Feldman opened up her beautiful home so WCL members could reconnect with old friends and meet new ones, all while sipping coffee and delicious breakfast treats.
Thank you Jan and the rest of the social committee: Jana Hinton, Jessica Pohl, and Francesca Sibble!

WCL Poolside Cocktail Party September 15, 2022
Over thirty members gathered around Nancy Trodden's pool for a night of friendship, food, and fun with a delicious signature cocktail, the Flaming-Gal, which was served by very friendly bartenders Andy and Jack (they left their post and walked around the pool refilling drinks, which was not in their contract, FYI). There were delicious appetizers and the WCL Social Events team hit it out of the park with their planning! From the beautiful custom floral arrangements to the fun straws (who knew there were flamingo themed straws???), candles, tablecloths, and balloons, no detail was overlooked! It looks like our 2022-2023 year is off to a good start. And a huge shout out to the Membership Co-Chairs
