September 24: Sips with Your Sisters
Sue Souls has graciously offered her beautiful home on the marsh as the setting for our welcome back cocktail party. Soft drinks, wine and light appetizers will be served from 5 until 7 p.m. We hope to see many of you there and perhaps even a few new faces. Pi Phis only (no spouses), casual attire. Sue’s address is 206 Yam Gandy Road in The Landings. RSVP to Allison Smith firstname.lastname@example.org or 912-398-8440 by September 18th.
October 23: Savannah Bee Garden Tour & Lunch
This promises to be a great double header! We’ll start our morning at 10:30 at Savannah Bee’s Wilmington Island location where we will learn all about honeybees, beekeeping, and the impact bees have on our everyday lives and the environment. We’ll even suit up in proper beekeeper protective clothing to get up close and personal with a working beehive. And of course, there will be ample time to sample their wonderful products. Following the tour, we’ll be lunching at nearby J. Thomas Kitchen where we will be ordering off the menu. If you haven’t been to this popular new eatery, you’re missing quite possibly the best food in Savannah. Carpooling will be organized from The Landings. Figure on a 10 a.m. departure and returning by 2 p.m. The tour cost is $8 and can be paid on the day of the tour. RSVP to Allison by September 26th. She will be travelling out of the country until October 19th which is why she is requesting reservations well ahead of the tour date.
December 5: Holiday Luncheon 11:30 am
Don your festive holiday garb and join us for our annual luncheon. This year we’ll be in the cozy library at The Plantation Club at The Landings. 11:30 a.m. The price is $25.00. Please use your checks to RSVP by Monday, November 25th payable to Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club of Savannah and mail or tube them to Sue Souls, 206 Yam Gandy Rd Savannah 31411 (Plantation)
February 11: Wilkes’ & Walk About
How many of you have never dined at the incomparable Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room because of the long lines to get in? Well, now is your chance as we have arranged a skip the line luncheon for you. And after dining on delicious fried chicken, meat loaf, mac & cheese, collards, mashed potatoes, candied yams, pickled beets and nearly 20 other dishes, you’re going to need some exercise. So, we have arranged a one-hour walking tour with Mike Mack from Noble Jones Tours of the historic and beautiful Jones Street area. We’ll be carpooling from The Landings at 11:30 for our noon reservation. Our tour guide will meet us at the restaurant at 1 p.m. and we should be back at The Landings by 2:30. Lunch is $25 which includes the tax but not the optional gratuity; and can be paid that day. They are holding two tables for our group for a total of 20. The tour is $18 including tip. Tour checks payable to Allison Smith are due by December 20th. Her address is 4 Skimmar Circle, Savannah 31411. Mrs. Wilkes’ will be closed all of January and into the first week of February which is why Allison needs to confirm our final count in December.
April 25: Founders Day Luncheon
After our delicious lunch there in 2019, we’re heading back to Vic’s on the River. And this year, our special guest will be Roger Smith, Director of The Learning Center. Those of you who have heard Roger speak, know how well-informed, interesting and charismatic he is. In keeping with the purpose of our gathering as we honor Pi Phi’s Founders, Roger will be talking to us about The Visionary Women of Savannah. Look for your invitation in March.
