Happy Fall, y'all!

Our first official luncheon was a success!  The feeling of excitement and friendship in the air was contagious and I was excited to see so many dressed for the fairytale theme.  The WCSC Board hopes that you all enjoyed yourselves and that you are excited to join us on October 19th for our "Design On A Dime" luncheon.  Be on the lookout for your Punchbowl invitation on October 1st, the RSVP deadline is October 12th.  Our Community Outreach chair, Meagan, will be collecting new and gently used hats/gloves/coats during the October luncheon to be donated to the Elim Missionary in Poland.  Please take a moment to look through your closets to help us "Spread The Warmth".  At the luncheon there will be a special Community Outreach opportunity drawing, you will receive a ticket for each donated item.

The WCSC Activities committee has planned many fun activities and clubs, there is something for everyone.  Our first overnight trip takes place October 24-26 to Nove, Italy; this will be a special trip full of new experiences including shopping for pottery and designer leather handbags.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new WCSC members.  It was a pleasure to meet those of you who were able to join us for the Newcomers Welcome hosted by Jill Crider at the WCSC Clubhouse.  Sharing a fantastic Oktoberfest lunch with new friends was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.  We hope to see you at future events and activities.  Membership is open all year, so please invite a friend to join!

The chilly weather and kurbissuppe are confirmation that Fall has arrived.  This time of year is wonderful.....whether you go to the festivities at Burg Frankenstein, Oktoberfest in Munich, or simply a walk through the vineyards I hope you've found something to love.  

We hope to see you and your little ghosts and goblins on Halloween, remember to stop by the WCSC Clubhouse for a sweet treat!

Warm regards,
Alicia Bailey
WCSC President

Priscilla Proper

Hellooo Dahhhlllings! So very excited to meet you! I'm Priscilla Proper and as my name suggests, I'm graciously offering my assistance in answering your protocol and etiquette questions! I hope my answers will alleviate any worries you may have about current social situations while you're here in Wiesbaden!  My only request is that you send me your questions (NO NAMES PLEASE!) and I'll happily endeavor to solve your dilemma!   With that in mind, please allow me to address a delightful gal who wrote to me asking for advice on RSVPs and hostess gifts! Read on...
Dear Priscilla,
I'm just not certain of my responses when it comes to all these " RSVP, Regrets Only, etc etc"! What should I do and should I bring along a hostess gift to all these socials? What about thank you notes too? HELP
Signed,
Bewildered Buffy
Oh Dahling Buffy, not to worry!

This one is si facile! Of course you should always reply to any invitation that has a "RSVP" note, which plainly means, "respond please". What it does not express, and I personally prefer, is that you should also respond as soon as possible. If the invitation has a "Regrets Only" line, it means "call if you are not attending". Regarding hostess gifts, it certainly is not required nor expected that you bring along a token of appreciation, but who doesn't love a thoughtful trinket? Of course you should always send a nice note or call your hostess shortly after the event.
 
All of this is about CONSIDERATION. By replying when asked to do so and conveying your appreciation for the invitation and the wonderful time that you surely had at the social, is just an expression of respect and gratitude. Besides, dahling, who wants to plan for 20 when only 10 will attend? 
Now, I'm off to a fabulous soiree this evening and I must attend to those matters at hand!

Until next month,
Considerately yours,
Priscilla

A Note About Reservations

Club members can reserve their seats via the electronic Punchbowl invitation they receive monthly. If you are a paid member and did not receive an invitation in your inbox, please email reservationswcspousesclub@gmail.com

Non-members can reserve seats for their first luncheon only by sending an email to the Reservation Chair at the following: reservationswcspousesclub@gmail.com We love having a full house, but please remember that reservations for luncheons MUST be reserved by the RSVP date for each luncheon. No walk-ins can be accepted.

Unfortunately, last minute reservations cannot be accepted after the RSVP deadline. If there are cancellations prior to or on the day of the luncheon, we will post the available number of seats to our Facebook page.

According to the cancellation policy, "A reservation for a WCSC function must be paid for unless it is canceled within the specified time period... [and] No additional reservation will be accepted for that individual until all previous obligations are paid."
