9/21: Tiffany’s Closet Summer Sale!

Tiffany’s Closet will be holding its annual Summer Sale on Saturday, September 21, from noon until 10 pm. We continue to have new items and have organized the closet in a new and wonderful way – much easier to find what you’re looking for.

We are also thrilled to announce that Jewels Johnson, seamstress extraordinaire, will be on hand with her sewing machine. Have clothes altered on site for minor adjustments or she’ll make arrangements to return them for major ones. Her fees are very, very reasonable and she does a great job. We know because she has adjusted a lot of clothes for our community over the years!

So come down to the TCNE clubhouse the third Saturday in September, 9/21, for the Tiffany Club House Party and also check out all the clothes, shoes and accessories! Buy something new and have it fitted or hemmed while you wait! Tiffany’s Closet opens at 12:00 noon and the House Party starts as usual at 7:00 pm. Non-members are very welcome!

Membership Feedback

The new Tiffany Club Board of Directors met on Friday, August 30, 2013 and plans to meet more regularly in coming months, both at the club and virtually via e-mail. Club leadership remains the same: Paula Howard (Chair), Mechelle Ziff (Vice-Chair), and Grace Stevens (Treasurer). Grace, who was already serving as Treasurer, has rejoined the Board along with new members Jamie Hart and Stacey C.

We would like to be better connected with TCNE membership, collecting feedback and proposals from club membership and letting you know of ideas and plans for the future. There is a new permanent <a href=”/?page_id=44″><strong>Membership Feedback</strong></a> page under the “About Us” menu for club leadership news and feedback.

<h3>BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE</h3>
We all agree the clubhouse could use a little sprucing up. Mechelle and Andrea Ziff are organizing a “Beautification Committee” to look into the options and cost for redecorating. All club members are welcome to help with this effort. <strong>Contact Andrea at: <a href=”mailto:andreaziff@aol.com”>andreaziff@aol.com</a></strong>

TCNE Annual BBQ and Elections – July 20

We hope to see everyone at the annual Tiffany Club Barbecue on Saturday, July 20.  Join us for great food and conversation! There will be hamburgers, hot dogs  potato salad, water melon, ice cream and soft drinks. We will be there at 4:00 for anyone who wants to come early and hang out.

During the BBQ, 4:00 – 11:00 pm, TCNE will also be holding an election for three seats on our Board of Directors.

We warmly thank the three current Board members whose terms are ending: Debra Kelly, Aster Shepherd and Becca M. Their support and work for TCNE are deeply appreciated. Our other two Board members, Paula Howard, Chair, and Mechelle Ziff, Vice Chair, are slated to continue.

There are three candidates for the three open board positions:

Grace Stevens
Jamie Hart
Stacey C.

We will have a ballot box at the clubhouse. If you cannot make the BBQ, you can email your votes to info@tcne.org. If voting by email, please be sure to clearly identify yourself with your adopted name on our records.  You have three votes and write-ins are fine. All votes must be in by 11:00 pm, 7/20/13.

You must be a paid-up member to vote. If you have not paid annual dues this year (due on the anniversary of your previous payment), you can update your membership with Janet, Paula or Grace any night the club is open. Standard membership is still $65/year.

Please join us and remember to vote!
