Historic Pinewood Studios (currently fimling new Star Wars movie!!) was the site where our scintillating speaker Mr. Anton du Beke -- STAR dancer of hit TV show Strictly Come Dancing - had us dancing in our seats as he regaled us with behind the scenes tales of being the longest running star of the highly competitive hit TV show. President Kristi Thompson had the honor of taking a little spin around the dance floor, to demonstrate one number!!
Kudos to Sunita Schroff (Co-VP of Programs) for working her magic in scheduling not only the location but Anton du Beke, and to Julie McLemore (Co-VP of Programs) for mining some lovely photos and even a video clip for our PP slide show. Anton loved her work, and it helped members picture ourselves *there* as Anton shared behind the scenes experiences.
Thanks also go to Jen Fraser (VP Membership) and Suzanne Jewel (Secretary) and all the other ladies at the Entrance/Membership table who managed to handle our terrific attendance! Many thanks to the entire AWBS Board for all that they do behind the scenes to make these events work and for pitching in, in general. And to our hard working Activity Leaders for always showing up and working with every new space, and most especially to our incredible membership for literally going the extra mile to show up.
March 8th was also International Women's Day, and what better way to celebrate it than with this group of International Women. Cheers to you, ladies! Pinewood loved you, your AWBS vibrance, fun spirit, generosity and enthusiasm and invited us to come back. That's just the kind of group you are!
