Annual Women’s Get-Away Weekend set

Chadwick Bay Chapter of the NYS Women Inc. has finalized plans for its 19th Annual Women’s Get-Away Weekend. The dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 2, 3 and 4 at the Clarion Hotel, 30 Lake Shore Dr. East, Dunkirk. This fund-raiser provides scholarships to women continuing their education to help get back into the workplace or better their employment.

The weekend begins on Friday evening with wine tasting along with a scavenger hunt. Saturday there is a Shopping Expo from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., which is open to the public. Our weekend guests have pampering sessions starting on Friday night, continuing into Saturday afternoon. We are happy to announce that a Pound Class will be led by our own Ronnette Riforgiat. New workshops/seminars are scrapbooking, ukulele class, card making and painting on glass; there again will be canvas painting and basket weaving as well as an informal seminar on estate planning. We are also planning a healthy cooking class.
