Upcoming Monthly Luncheons / Dinners

     Date - June 13, 2020:  The following information remails in effect:  Due to the Coronavirus, all scheduled monthly luncheons and combined luncheons are in limbo.  Scheduling is based on local COVID-19 guidelines to ensure that reduced risks are the primary considerations for social gatherings.  Updates and future changes will be sent as e-mail, and will be posted on this web site.
      Do hope everyone remains vigilant, safe, and healthy.

     Monthly Luncheon Background:  The monthly luncheon idea started in 2016 with the VHPA Ladies of the Alamo Chapter organizing their own monthly luncheons - just so they could have more time to visit and better get to know each other.  After a few months - the Men learned how much the Ladies were enjoying themselves, and decided to try and do the same thing!
     Thus the idea for separate monthly luncheons for most months, then for a change of pace we plan both a Spring and Fall Combined luncheon.  All of these monthly luncheons are scheduled completely seperate from the General Membership Business Meeting/Dinners.  So far – all of our Combined Luncheons have been at more upscale restaurants - because it  appeals to our lady folks.
     Ladies who want to learn more about the VHPA Ladies of the Alamo Chapter - please contact Annette Whitney at Ph. (210) 260-3708 / anetlw@hotmail.com , or her backup - Janet-Anne Boykin at Ph. (210) 437-6559 / boykinjnja@gmail.com.

     Note: 
A Questionnaire was sent out to our membership requesting them to identify any given Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday that just will not work for attending our Monthly Luncheons.  The resulted matrix shows that Thursdays are the most difficult, but Tuesdays and Wednesdays are equally divided as suited for future luncheon days. 
     With this information, it has been suggested that alternating
monthly luncheons between Tuesdays and Wednesdays will give the greatest opportunity for the most participants to attend.  
      Details for our Membership Monthly Luncheons; General Membership-Business meetings/dinners; Monthly Luncheons for the VHPA Ladies of the Alamo Chapter; and our Annual Christmas Party will be scheduled seperately by date on these pages.
