Betsy Armstrong, President, says she is sorry to say that the Rummage Sale Style show, normally the January meeting, has  been canceled.  Instead we are having a Wesern themed party serving a Bar-B-Q luncheon with a Texas Sheet Cake for $15 a head. 

Make reservations to Helen Hough by Tuesday the 6th.

The January meeting has always been to come together and nail down work schedules and logistics for the Rummage Sale (Jan. 24th and 25th).  We will start setting up January 17th, so come help work if you can.  It will be greatly appreciated.

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.
