Women’s Connection celebrates the new year with style show and brunch


Susan Reynhout, Publicity Chairman

Begin the new year by treating yourself to a splendid girlfriend morning of fun, fellowship, good food and a fabulous style show. Invite your friends to join you on Thursday, January 11, in the Kingston Ballroom of the Oakwood Country Club of Sun Lakes at 9:00 a.m.

Are you looking for the perfect casual clothes for the Sun Lakes lifestyle or some cruise wear? How about a new look altogether?

It features a vast selection of casual tops, pants and dresses and has the largest selection of swimwear in the East Valley. This is a shop where you will experience personal attention by a knowledgeable staff in finding the perfect swimwear.
