mission of the Lubbock Fun Club is to help people find the FUN in Lubbock!
Fun Club enjoys the popularity among some of Lubbock's most FUN families
and we are glad you are with us! Here is your Fun Report.
New Stuff for 05!
have spent the last month putting together a year you won't believe. We're
going to have booths at the neatest events, promotions for some awesome
businesses, neat things to win, great chances to do things as a family,
and we are expanding what the Lubbock Fun Club can do for you! Check out
these additions for this year:
How to U ... is a list of all the coolest things you can learn
in town. From ballroom dancing, to making sterling silver jewelry, to
conversational spanish, to making stain glass, etc. etc. Some classes
are a few hours, some a few weeks. And this is also a chance for YOU to
teach us what YOU know how to do. We'll be having smaller classes just
among us for things like faux painting, computer lessons one on one, and
so much more. Visit How to U right now to see!
Stars Luncheons ... We had the best time in January. We had
a fun lunch together at Firewater Cafe and Dorothy's models strolled through
with some gorgeous outfits. Click here to
see the pictures and stay tuned for upcoming lunches. It will be in
the upcoming Fun Club reports. (Also ... you might want to read the most
recent Life Lesson about how women need times
for 'gathering'. We all found being together to be refreshing and fun.
More info, more often ... Okay, you convinced me you want more
FUN info more often. We are going to start sending out the Lubbock
Fun Report weekly so look for them. The weekly emails will be dated
"Lubbock Fun - February 9, 2005" ... and the other emails will
be entitled by their topic i.e. "Lubbock Fun Club - Special Invitaiton".
This way, you can see what's going on more often.
