Equest Women’s Auxiliary Founder Louise Griffeth’s dining room was jammed the other day with gals. But they weren’t brunching. Instead of plates of croissants and cucumber sandwiches, the ladies with pens in hand were facing stacks of letters inviting Equest friends and supporters to be a part of the Equest Women’s Auxiliary Luncheon and Style Show.
While Louse and EWA President Angie Kadesky were in the kitchen providing fuel, Luncheon Chair Beth Thoele was in the dining room supervising the handiwork. Beth’s plan was to take the personalized letters to the mailbox on Tuesday following Memorial Day.
Before you head to cooler places, check your mailbox. If you don’t find a letter from an EWA-er, don’t feel left out. Chances are that it’s trapped in the postal universe. Just so you don’t have to fret or stalk your postman, here are the highlights. Presented by Highland Park Village, this year’s theme is “Reins of Hope” with Robyn Conlon as honorary chair. The annual Equest Award for Community Service will be presented to sisters Elisa Summers and Heather Washburne.
So, even if the letter didn’t make it through the rain today, ink in Tuesday, October 3, for the Equest fundraiser lunch and fashion show produced by Jan Strimple at Brook Hollow. The Equest Mini Ambassadors are hoping you’ll be there.
Still have questions and can’t wait for your letter? Just check with Beth!
