January H2H Newsletter


Heart to Heart Meeting Reminders for the month of January

HEART TO HEART MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

For January 2020
Hi Monica, 

Happy New Year! I didn't send out a newsletter last month and I am late sending this month's out too. Typical! So anyway, last month I experimented with a few different formats for our meetings now that we have trimmed our introduction time. Which format did you like best?
  1. Open Topic Discussion
  2. Guided Topic Discussion
  3. Extra Spotlight Table
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our Jan 13th meeting which was our Holiday Party but I have moved the party to replace our Jan 27th meeting. Your RSVP on our website has been moved to the new date so please update your RSVP if you cannot make it on the 27th. I will refund anyone who needs to be. 
On our Facebook Group, please check out the poll to see when we should plan our next Storm outing to watch the women's basketball game. I purchase a 20-person suite and the cost is less than a regular ticket to the game. It is a great way to network and get to know each other. Watching the game is optional. 
Finally, I am moving forward with our Bunco Night on Feb 6th. Thank you for your interest and hopefully we can get enough people to play! I will need a minimum of 16-20 people to make it worthwhile. Please RSVP and pay for your spot!

Jan 13th Meeting Cancelled (will move to Jan 27th)


Dear Monica,

Our meeting tonight on Jan 13th has been cancelled due to the snow. School is closed today for my kids so it is best we cancel for tonight.

I know it got a little confusing as my auto email reminders went out before I could change everything. The meeting for Jan 13th has been MOVED to Jan 27th. This is because it is our holiday party meeting and there are payments involved so it is easier to change the meeting date than to start all over again. If you RSVP'd to the Jan 13th meeting and cannot attend the Jan 27th meeting, please let me know. I will refund anyone who paid.

The original event for Jan 27th has been archived but you might have received an email to RSVP that now no longer works. This is why.

I will also send a text message to all our registered members *IF* a cell phone number was provided. This is one of the reasons why it is important for everyone to have a free membership and keep your profile on our website updated.

Stay safe out there!
~Monica~

November Monthly Newsletter


Heart to Heart Meeting Reminders for the month of November

HEART TO HEART MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

For November 2019
Hi Monica, 

Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey as they were very helpful in moving forward. The good news is there are going to be some great changes ahead so I encourage you to attend a meeting to see what is changing! I will try to summarize things below but it will be easier to attend a meeting and see in person. 
I am also adding a special drawing for a free dinner that will be only open to new attendees (or people we haven't seen in a while) and the people who invited them. I will do this at least through the end of this year. 
I am sad that our Oct Bunco Night had to be cancelled but there were not enough attendees. I could not find an available date at Shawn O'Donnell's for our next one so it will be held at Inspark instead. Since it costs money to rent Inspark and I will be providing some heavy appetizers for everyone, the cost will be collected upfront. I will still need a minimum of 20 people to RSVP or the event will be cancelled. I hope the new date works for everyone!

October Monthly Newsletter (part 2)


Heart to Heart Meeting Reminders for the month of October (part 2)

HEART TO HEART MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

For October 2019 (part 2)
Hi Monica, 
Consider yourself lucky! Two newsletters in one month! I am behind in getting updates out and there is a lot to share right now so please read everything. 
We are collecting items again this year for Clothes for Kids and Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County. Please read more details below. 
I asked on Facebook if text messages to remind people to RSVP would be helpful and many said it would not. However, there were enough people who said it would be helpful so I will experiment through the end of this year with it. The service does cost money so this will be a service for our paid members to begin with. 
I am also experimenting with adding a bunco night 4x a year to our calendar. One of these will be our Anniversary Party so it will be free for our paid members. All other bunco nights will cost $5 to play. Plus, there is the expectation to purchase food/drinks please budget about $25 for a fun night out. Make sure to RSVP to the Oct 30th event!

HEART TO HEART MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

For October 2019
Hi Mieko, 
Oops! I meant to get this out last month but the month slipped away from me. We have some more changes coming with our venue so I will explain it more below.
I am also going to experiment with adding a bunco night 4x a year to our calendar. One of these will be our Anniversary Party so it will be the only one that is free for our paid members. All other bunco nights will cost $5 to play. Plus, there is the expectation to purchase food/drinks so please budget about $25 for a fun night out. 
Finally, I have an event that I am hosting at our office at Inspark Coworking in Lynnwood and I would love to have your help by either attending or inviting someone. It will be all about Viking River and Ocean Cruises so come & learn! It is Oct 8th at 6:30pm with food and wine provided. Please RSVP and share.
