President’s November Message

Dear Guild Members:

Our 2020-2021 meetings are on schedule. We have great venues, terrific meals, and interesting programs. In November at Scenic Hills Country Club, we will further our Music in Education program with the theme “Thankful for the Music”.

Our December program at the Pensacola Yacht Club, “Home for the Holidays and Auction,“ will feature vocalist Ellen Vinson accompanied by Bobby Van Duessen at the piano.  Our auction will feature gift baskets ready to be purchased for holiday giving designed and donated by our members.  Each featured gift basket will have a list of the items included in the wrapped basket along with the approximate value and starting bid.  An example was the themed “Tea Basket” auctioned at the September meeting. Please refer to our September Newsletter for photos.

Baskets already collected include: 

  • Daily inspirational

  • Unique champagne glasses with wine

  • Crystal plate and cover with boxed candy

  • Table top Christmas Tree

  • Martini

  • Mini jars of gourmet jelly beans.


Other fun items to donate could include new candles, preserves, jams, jellies, pickles, potted plants, bulbs.

We would like to have some special-order casseroles and dessert. Please include a photograph and the starting bid for auction bid sheets.


Please contact Sooz Cobb, Lyndi Kessler or Trisha Woodburn if you have items to contribute.

Please mask up for our luncheons, social distance. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Trisha Woodburn

President 2020-2021
