Encore Social Club is getting ready for food and fashion. Luncheon Cchairwomen, Deborah Haines, Pam Jennings and Mary Wathen have planned a spectacular event that you won't want to miss. Le Chateau in South Salem is the setting of Encore's annual Luncheon and Fashion Show. Models in the Fashion Show will be wearing clothing provided by Helen Ainson of Darien. This event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, from 11:15 to 2:30 p.m.

Spring is the time for heading outdoors. The Encore Hiking Group is scheduled to meet again on Friday, April 23. Additionally, the women's golf league will begin their season in mid-April, with 18-hole players teeing off on Tuesday mornings and nine-hole players on Friday mornings.

If you enjoy gardening, then Encore has planned an event just for you. Mark your calendar for May 6, when Encore returns to Gilbertie's Herb Gardens in Westport. The focus of the morning will be on spring flower containers. Participants will create their own container with guidance from Carol Gilbertie, Victory Garden guest and gardening lecturer. Bring a pot from home, or buy one there. Refreshments will be served.

Encore is a women's social group and membership is open to all women living in New Canaan and surrounding towns.
