Midway through March and we have successful concluded three lectures.
We started the month with back-to-back lectures in two days. On Tuesday March 7th we had our inaugural lecture at the Club House of Villa Borghese in Delray. The Duchess of Windsor lecture was well-received, and we worked closely with Maris Newmark to make it a success. We are invited back for next year, so we can conclude our audience was pleased. Several of our friends attended, including the wonderful Lauri Welteroth.
The following day we had a lunch lecture of the Normandie at the Bellaggio Club House in Lake Worth. This was our second appearance there, after last year’s Duchess lecture, and they want René to return next year for a third time. We love Shannon Emmel and Leia Moses-Levine, and we enjoyed spending some time with them during the lunch that was organized before René lectured. Good friends Susan and David Samrick attended, making it even more special.
The third lecture was this past week, which was our second appearance at the Boca Raton Resort & Club this season. The Duchess lecture was well-received, and we look forward to our continued relationship with Barbara and Ron Chase, who are great organizers. We will return to present some more lectures there next season.
This week we will be travelling to Atlanta and Los Angeles. Atlanta is work-related, since we will present the Normandie lecture at the Atlanta History Center, René’s third appearance there. During the day we will attend a luncheon at Ruth Dobbs Anthony’s home. She hosted a similar amazing luncheon last year so this promises to be a wonderful event. Keep an eye on Facebook for pictures. We have prepared a new and special lecture for her distinguished guests.
LA is a short pleasure trip, where we will attend the 99th birthday of Royce Diener, René’s former boss, the CEO of American Medical International (NYSE:AMI).
We will end the month with one more Mizner lecture at Abbey Delray, our third appearance there this season, on Thursday March 30th.
In other news, we have been approached to create a lecture about the history of the famous Mar-A-Lago, “from Marjorie Merriweather Post to Trump”. Of course, living in Palm Beach and having become somewhat of a Palm Beach history expert, René would be the perfect person to deliver presentations on this more and more famous historic mansion. Stay tuned for more information on this new project.
