     Words from President Betsy Armstrong following the May 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.  We had a nice  meeting and adjourned for the summer months.
       The September 11th meeting will be held at the Allegro House with check-in at 10:30 a.m.  This is our Meet and Greet and is open to all past, present, and future members.  Dues for the new year will be collected and new directories will be available.  It's always fun to reconnect and find out what happened over the summer.  Please come join us!  Lunch, Asiago Chicken Sandwiches with French Fries, will be catered by Allegro Bay and reservations are requested by Tuesday the 9th to Helen Hough, 727-9071.  The cost of the lunch will be $15."

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 island.  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 Mazatlan.  By Rockport standards 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 meeting 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 you a name tag.  Without name tags we are all apt to forget who we are.  See the Membership and Meetings page for more information.
