There you go! It’s those times where you try to multi-task and you totally mess up. That’s how Wednesday, November 19th started off. Drat!
The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas’s “Women of Distinction” luncheon was a name-popping affair. Lifetime Achievement Awardee Gene Jones looked more spectacular than ever with white shredded-edge cuffs and collar. Such a fashion setter, the brunette showed off a couple of gams in black opaque stockings. Whoa! Those legs were joined by a bunch of others in black. Just shows that when the temperatures drop down, the stockings pop up on the scene.
Woman of Distinction honoree Nancy Ann Hunt was joined by dotter Ashlee Kleinert, but she soon found herself in conversation with the Dallas Women’s Foundation’s Ros Dawson and keynote speaker Allison Levine.
Both Gene and Nancy were pleased to see the upcoming generation of Girl Scouts represented by the 2015 Young Women of Distinction Hockaday senior Meredith Burke and The School for the Talented and Gift at Townview Center senior Cameron Wicks.
Over at a table Ruth Altshuler was trying to keep a low profile, but forget it. She soon found herself chatting with young Girl Scouts, Bobby Lyle and Luncheon Chair Elizabeth Gambrell.
Katy Menges was your typical proud mama bear. Her daughter Lyric Menges was on target for her Girl Scout goals, just like her mom.
Couldn’t stay for the luncheon because of another one taking place at the Winspear. But due to “restrictions” that one got scratched for coverage. It seems that the headliner‘s handlers put a kibosh on photos during the grip-and-grin come together. Too bad. She didn’t look that bad from afar.
Boo-hoo! Should have stayed at the Girl Scouts. Evidently Alison was a memory maker and user-friendly by one and all.
BTW, if you saw all that brouhaha about the Girl Scouts going digital in selling cookies, relax. The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas are going to take a pass on participating in the hi-tech program this year. According to sources, they “will evaluate phase one of the Digital Cookie platform at the end of the current cookie season and make a decision about its implementation in our council for the 2015-2016 season.”
So, the traditional booths and direct door-to-door sales will continue for the upcoming season that starts January 15, 2015, with the addition of new flavors Rah-Rah Raisins and gluten-free Toffee-tastic.
