Les Dames d'Escoffier New York

Dear Members
Hello everyone! I’m delighted to introduce myself as the new LDNY president, and Nancy Jessup as the new Vice President. We plan to send a letter about once a month, so that we can keep in touch, and give information about what is happening in our organization. Our Board of Directors, for the coming year, is almost finalized. We will announce the names in next month’s letter.

One of my particular hopes for this year is that every member will participate in our organization, on committees, programs, special events, and more. And we would like to know what you think about what we do. Nancy, the Board and I are all interested in hearing your thoughts on what we are doing that’s right, what doesn’t work, and how we can be a better organization.  We are poised for a great year in 2015!

Best regards, Dame Linda Lawry

As we come to the end of the year, we have the final opportunity to make a 2014 donation to our scholarship fund. This has the dual rewards of supporting one of our most important raison d’être, and the chance to take a last tax deduction for the year. A Scholarship Donation form was shared via e-mail, or you may also donate online HERE. Please consider this very worthy cause.

On December 11, we had one of the best Holiday Parties ever! Our deep appreciation to Dame Pamela Morgan for inviting us into her spectacular apartment, overlooking Central Park. Photos to come!

More good news! We are delighted to welcome back two former members, Sara Moulton and Corrine Trang.

Have you visited our IN THE NEWS section? You'll find great articles, penned by Dames, press clips and live links to Dame-hosted radio programs, too.  Visit HERE.
