Events Past


December Meeting & Cookie Exchange

Jevene Caracello and Kim Baumgardner planned the annual Cookie Exchange event during our December meeting.  

We had a full house and everyone had a great time.  Everyone brought 2 dozen cookies to share and everyone left with 2 dozen to take home!  The winner of the Best Cookie was:  Melanie O'Brien!  Her chocolate peppermint cookie was perfect for the season!  Congrats Melanie!

4Kids Christmas Party

Board members Jennifer Picardi, Sherri Propis and member Sabrina Brown represented FPWC at the annual 4Kids Christmas Party.  We were invited by member Kenya Reinhardt who serves as the President of 4Kids of the Treasure Coast.

Members donated gifts for the kids and Jenn, Sherri and Sabrina served breakfast to the families.  The families had a great time making gingerbread houses and took home gifts for the Holidays.

Breakfast With A Lifesaver

Our new monthly event, Breakfast With A Lifesaver continues to grow!  We are especially appreciative of iThink Financial for their annual sponsorship and Pete Ferguson with Goodfellas Pest Management for their donation of gift cards for the honored Lifesavers.  

The event is held the 3rd Wednesday of each month, costs $15 pp and includes a wonderful breakfast.  Come at 7:00 am to help set up and to begin serving at 7:30 am.  The event is from 8-9 am.

Christmas In The City

FPWC was represented at the St Lucie County Chamber Ambassador's "Christmas in the City" on Dec. 10th at Dyer Chevrolet.

This gave us an opportunity to showcase FPWC to the public and recruit new members!  Thanks to member Stephanie Ankiel for manning our table.

Events Future

1st  Annual Appreciation Celebration
