6th Annual Fashion Show at Pat DeAtley's home
The event was well attended and we enjoyed Yakima's surprise "sunny 9but not hot) weather". As usual, Pat's flowers were in bloom. If some of you noticed all the flower arrangements at your table - they were from Pat's beautiful gardens.
Members and guests enjoyed the wonderful food brought by the board and members as well as the wine (donated by Ivone Petzinger) that was brought to share. The music by Wyman Chapman helped some of us reminisce about the good old days and was made possible by a generous gift from Pat DeAtley.
The fashion show by Gretchen was well received by everyone as we enjoyed the models showing us great new fashions for summer 2009.
I would like to thank the Board members and ex officio members for 2009-2010 for making this event a success. At the event, we welcomed three new Board Members for this year Marisol Summers (Mexico), Joan Iott (Canada), and Arlie Sample (Canada). Welcome ladies! Thank you all for working so hard!
An extra special THANK YOU to Al and Pat De Atley for sharing their lovely home as well as their generous support for I-WAY. Thanks to Shannon, Ty and Carl for helping setting up and for their stand by help whenever impromptu requests were made at the party. Thank you to Mei Huey for taking the lovely pictures.
Lastly, kudos to everyone who brought non perishable items. We collected several boxes of non perishable items for the Northwest Harvest Food Bank. It was nice to see International Women helping the needy in our community. Way to go ladies!
