The October meeting of the Woman’s Club of Cypress was the annual Inspiration Breakfast. This year’s theme was based on the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Almost fifty members and guests wore black outfits and pearls, like Audrey Hepburn did in the movie.

The club’s event, called Woman’s Club & Co. Inspiration Breakfast, was organized by member, Sherre Yurenko and her volunteer committee. The theme was carried to all parts of the meeting including a photo backdrop, Tiffany blue decorations and food inspired by the Tiffany’s restaurant.

The breakfast buffet featured snowflake waffles, decorated donuts, bagels with smoked salmon, small quiches, fruit and more. Members enjoyed eating and talking before the program began.

The guest speaker was Pastor Mike McKay of Cypress Church. McKay’s presentation called The Power of Kindness, shared how being kind can make the difference in how we connect with those around us. Kindness is not just being nice, but our actions and thoughts should be bold, courageous, and seasoned with love. Acts of kindness release serotonin and we feel happier.

At the November 6 meeting, the Woman’s Club of Cypress will feature Jesse Anderson as a guest speaker. The public is invited to this free talk regarding “awareness” and self-defense tips for keeping safe in today’s world. Jesse is a mixed martial arts fitness coach with over twenty-five years of experience. Besides working as a personal trainer, he teaches classes locally in kickboxing, boxing, and self-defense, and has trainer’s certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
