Announcing Academy Award Party!/Pgh Chick Lit Club Update

From: Susan L.
Sent on: Wednesday, February 11, 2009 3:37 PM
Hello everyone,

I am so excited about our book club. We really have a great group of girls (yes, mostly women, but I prefer the term girls, it's more fun!).

We have 140+ members on the site, with a mix from all over town. If you haven't joined us for a while, please feel free to come to a book club night even if you haven't read the book. Or, we have movies and other events planned; feel free to join us even if you don't "know" us. We'll make sure we get to know you.

A few things I want to mention to the group:

1) Membership dues for 2009 are due. Thank you to those of you who have already paid. If you haven't had a chance, please either give your money to the leader at a book night, or pay using PayPal on the main site - The Pittsburgh Chick Lit Book Club. If you prefer to send me a check, please email me and I will send you my home address. We use dues to pay for the use of, and at the end of the year, if there is money left over, we will use it for our charity event.

2) Speaking of charity events, Liselle is organizing a charity tea in June. Please see the message boards for more details, or send her an email if you would like to help. We are hoping to make this a yearly event, to use our book club brains and beauty for more than just chick lit - to help others. The proceeds will be going to the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council to help with their needs. Imagine life without Harry Potter, Jane Austen or the Shopaholic!?!? That's what life would be like without reading. Please help us support this very worthy cause.

3) We have a fabulous night planned to celebrate the Oscars - Sunday, February 22nd at McFadden's in the Northside (okay, NorthShore, whatever!). I just talked to the party planner there, and she will let us use their red carpet and backdrop for taking formal pictures! Bring your friends and let's get all dressed up. I have a very cute dress from a formal that I am planning to wear- Please plan to join us for this fun night out - we will have prizes for gossip knowledge and trivia. See more details here - Academy Award Party!

4) Finally, I want to say how much I enjoy the new friends I have made from this group. We really have had some fun events over the past year (I took over as organizer last February - Liselle and Lindsey as Ass't Organizers, then we added both Katie and Heather P.) It's great to have a group of chicks to rely on for fun and for good advice. If anyone ever has any comments or suggestions or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the information below.

Hope to see everyone very soon - Shadyside, I will see you next week!
