On Key Allegro Island in the city of
Words from President Betsy Armstrong following
8th meeting at the Country Club "The Allegro Women's Club awarded
scholarships for 2014 graduates Forrest Unterbrink, Hayley Arnold and
Matt Garcia at the May Meeting. I am very proud of our efforts to raise
these funds. It means a lot of work for all the wonderful
volunteers. However, it is very rewarding to be able to help
these deserving students with the next stage of their lives.
Outgoing officers were thanked and new officers were installed.

With the first meeting of the club held in 1969, the history of the
Allegro Women's Club is closely intertwined with that of the
club has been continuously active in fund raising primarily with its
Rummage Sale typically held in January or February at the Allegro
House. The club is non-profit and uses its earnings to support
such endeavors as several scholarships for graduating high school
students, the local volunteer fire departments, EMS, and the
library. The recipients and the amounts of contributions are
determined annually by the Board of Directors.
Actually, the Rummage Sale has a second important purpose. Given
the tendency of Key Allegro home owners to overshop and overbuy, it is
essential to clean out once a year. Some backsliding occurs when
we stoop to buying other people's discards, but in a year or two most
of those purchases come back to be re-sold.
In the recent past most meeting were held at the Rockport Country Club
but in we find that members prefer to meet at the Allegro House, 29
this is a "dress event." For those who are new to Rockport we must
explain that this
simply means that blue jeans are not appropriate. Most other
will be held at the Allegro where the lunch will be
catered. If you want to
come and join us we'd like to have your name in advance so we can make
a name tag. Without name tags we are all apt to forget who we
are. See the Membership and Meetings
page for more information.
