Les Femmes' Past Presidents, led by Michelle Mew and Nona Carl, are chairing the Past Presidents' party on September 26 at the magnificent Sharif-Munir house at 10245 Strait Lane, thanks to Mickey and Michelle Munir. The event, from 2 to 4:30 p.m., not only honors Mary Lee Cox, but presents Diana Untermeyer, the wife of former Ambassador to Qatar Chase Untermeyer, and she will give a talk about her experiences as an American woman in the Middle East and give highlights of her new book "Qatar: Sand, Sea and Sky." The book is described on amazon.com as: "Qatar occupies a thumb of land that extends off the Arabian Peninsula into the Persian Gulf. This nation, though small in size, represents more than a strategic geographical location-it is uniquely beautiful and culturally rich. Qatar: Sand, Sea and Sky is an overview of the country and its journey into modernity while it preserves the duality of its culture as a desert by the sea. Stunning photography pairs with informative and personal text by the wife of the most recent United States ambassador to Qatar to give Westerners traveling to Qatar on business or for World Cup preparations an inside understanding of this moderate Muslim country and the way it attempts to become modern." 
 
And on October 13, from 5 to 7 p.m., the Woman of the Year Patron Party will be held, hosted and totally underwritten by Al Biernat at his restaurant Biernat's, 4217 Oaklawn Avenue, chaired by Judy Birchfield, hors d'oeuvres and wine in the garden room.

Jim Falk wore a chef's hat and made crepes as a special treat for the day.
This was a memorable event where Les Femmes welcomed the newest members, and were enlightened by brief talks from World Affairs Council leaders and from the Women of the Diplomatic Corps of Dallas. Event chairman Sharon Knowles provided an excellent opportunity for Les Femmes' new members to learn the essence of what Les Femmes represents--enlightening and information programs in a spirit of fun and merriment.
 
One of the new members of Les Femmes du Monde is Mrs. Trammell Crow (Margaret Crow) who said she was so delighted with our luncheon at the Old Warsaw on March 1 that she wanted to belong. So this beautiful civic leader, in her 90s, is Les Femmes' newest member! invest in Google shares
