Time: 11:00 am  lunch to be served around 12 noon.
Location: Fairlawn Country Club, 200 N. Wheaton Road, Akron, OH  44313
Free parking with valet service available.

We are hosting a luncheon and program, along with a silent auction at the Fairlawn Country Club.  Laura Loew of Lost in the Past will treat us to a unique nostalgic program about familiar wedding and bridal traditions as you watch a live model—our own Cate Conley!—prepare for a vintage wedding day, circa early 1900s.

Our goal is to sell 150 seats. Why not sponsor a table and help us to fill every seat?

We will enjoy an elegant lunch, delectable desserts, and a wonderful program. What a great afternoon outwith your circle of friends!

The cost per person is $40 (note our revised pricing in order to cover our expenses!).
