The Pine Bluff Christian Women’s Connection will hold its monthly luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, June 21, at the Pine Bluff Country Club.


The speaker will be Elaine Vatalaro of Bella Vista, who will discuss a day forever etched in her mind: the Loma Prieta earthquake in California on October 17, 1989. Her presentation will be entitled, “The earth quaked and I baked.”


“As she shares her story, she encourages the listener to think about theirs and those times when it felt like the earth was giving way beneath you,” according to a news release. “Married to husband, Joe, they have three adult children and their spouses and five grandchildren. Elaine loves traveling and sharing life’s simple pleasures with everyone she meets.”


The luncheon decorations will be provided by Sharon Blankenship. The luncheon is $13.50, which includes the meal, tax and gratuity. The menu will be chicken spaghetti, mixed vegetables, bread and strawberry pie. Contact Jennifer Keahey at 870-540-9302 for reservations or cancellations by noon Monday, June 18.
