    Bonjour Madames et Messieurs!  

    Please accept our invitation to the 2018 “A Day in Paris,” Lunch, Fashion & Cabaret extravaganza on Thursday, October 18th, at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. This event is open to the public, and tickets are $36 each. Reservations open July 26th and will close October 5th. 

    We are excited to announce that this year’s gourmet lunch menu will have a choice of soup or salad, and three duet main course options to choose from. 

    The models will be showing off the latest fashions from some of our favorite stores, Boutique Elegante, Patrick James, and Orvis.  We will be introducing two new clothing stores, South Creek Clothing Co. and Chico’s.  Also, for the first time, Sierra Jewelry & Crystal will be presenting their dazzling and exquisite crystal jewelry by Swarovski.  

    This year’s Mistress of Ceremonies will be our very own past-President and fabulous lady Marsha Heidt!  

    Musical entertainment will be provided by the wonderfully talented group The Retro Radio Dolls.  The Dolls will be performing musical numbers from the hit Broadway Musical Cabaret!  Natalie Jones, lead vocalist, will also be performing Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose, which will showcase Ms. Jones’ impeccable vocal talent.

    We will have raffle and cash prizes, along with our magnificent raffle basket displays prepared by our Club’s Activity Groups.  Each basket will have a face value of $50 or more. In many cases much more!  If you prefer to write your name on the tickets rather than listen for the number, you may purchase Raffle/Cash Ticket Packets in advance at the July, August and September General Meetings.  $20 packets will also be available to purchase online, and may be picked up at any of the luncheons and the day of the show at the "Will Call" ticket table.  

    So, get your “passports” ready and prepare yourselves to have a c'est magnifique day in Paris…Ooh, la la!

     Au Revoir!

About Our Luncheon

Newcomers & Neighbors holds a monthly social luncheon for members and their guests that also serves as the Club’s general business meeting. It is held on the fourth Thursday of the month, except for October, November and December, when it's held the third Thursday.  At each luncheon, we have entertaining programs featuring local talent and a raffle of wonderful baskets! Luncheons are generally held at the Atlantis Spa & Resort, but may occasionally move to other locations during the year.  At $25 per person, it is an outstanding value for great food, great company, and great entertainment with local talent. New members and members attending for the first time are seated together in a front row table and will be introduced by Hospitality.
