THE PALM AIRE WOMEN’S CLUB CELEBRATES ITS SIXTIETH YEAR WITH A SPECTACULAR SEASON..
Fabulous programs will ensure that the club will be around for another sixty years.
Vice President Susan Romine has been toiling in the summer heat to ensure that the 2018/2019 luncheon programs simply can’t be missed. Original plays, circus clowns, dance teachers and children’s choirs are only some of this year’s highlights. Be sure to mark your calendar so you won’t miss any.
The premiere meeting of the season, Friday, October 12th, the PAWC presents a Theatre Odyssey. This special event will be an original, fully produced play written and performed by award-winning local artists.

Susan Romine is not the only PAWC member kept busy this summer. Pattie Meades has been organizing the Out and About Girls events. The last outing was to the Siesta Key Rum Distillery Tour. All present had a great time exploring this fun Sarasota establishment. Many were eager to return with families and friends. A great time was had by all. Everyone was appreciative of Pattie’s efforts and all are looking forward to the next one. Be sure to check your eblasts for future outings.
