The Oasis Golf Course Grille Room was full of members from the Mesquite area who came to watch the changing of the guard for the renowned Desert Dames. Outgoing President Darlene Carpenter introduced each member of her board and thanked them for their support and service during the past year. Carpenter then presented the gavel to the President for 2016-2017, Wendy Lauer. Lauer introduced each of her board members and expressed her excitement for a fun, rewarding year ahead.
The Desert Dames honored the following past presidents as special guests: Bobbie Green, Founder and first President of the Desert Dames in 1995, also 1996 and 2005; Libby Clark, 2008; Margie Milner, 2009; and Sandra Ramaker, 2011.
Members enjoyed a Taco Salad Bar and desert for lunch. As always, the lunch was delicious. The next luncheon for Desert Dames members will be on April 27 at the Oasis Golf Club Grille Room.
