Hello, Ladies!

Time for our March update following our last organizational meeting and gear-up for the State Convention, which will be heldatHyatt in OrlandoFriday, May 24 - Sunday, May 26, 2019.

As always, we will have the Ladies Gathering Place open Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, with ample opportunity to get your tickets for both the 50/50as well as the abundant raffle prizesdonated by so many generous ladies. 

I’d like to also ask well in advance for cookie/goodie donationsfor the Ladies Gathering Place.  We had some outstanding recipes last year!  Melodee will be calling to make sure we have enough.  An idea is to see if your Columbiettes auxiliaries might help with this aspect.  Auxiliary #14084 came through with 12 dozen cookies last year!

The theme this year for the luncheon is The Fifties!  So get out your poodle skirts, roll up your jeans, put on your sneakers, and put up your ponytails!  Our designated charity will again by Canine Companions for Independence.

To volunteer, call Melodee at 813-657-0343 and leave a message with your name, phone number and how you’d like to volunteer.  Melodee will return your call as quickly as possible:

1.     Cookies/pastries
2.     Selling raffle tickets

Continuing with various recipes and helpful hints, here is another killer recipe that is quick easy and a crowd pleaser for the warm-weather months.  Don’t let the name dissuade you —


Pink Slop

1 can sweetened condensed milk (like Borden’s)
1 container of thawed whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
1 can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 can of cherry pie filling

In a large bowl, using electric mixer, beat together condensed milk and whipped topping.  Then using a spatula, fold in pineapple and cherry pie filling.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy our update; see you at the Convention!
