Speaker: Leticia Hansen – Mary Kay Cosmetics, was our speaker today. She has been selling Mary Kay for seven years now. She got her start in the business when her husband Scott purchased Mary Kay for her as a gift, and she loved it! She passed around her lovely samples of Satin Hands and a face cream. The Mary Kay skin care line is suitable for all skin types’ even sensitive skin and Rosacea sufferers. The products are hypo-allergenic. The skin care line includes products for both men and women including, but not limited to, sun screen products, lip and eye treatments, age fighting products, acne treatments, moisturizers, soaps and cleansers; even in travel sizes! Leticia offers gift baskets with her products for easy gift giving. She will be working with the wedding industry doing make-up for brides. Leticia also offers facials and make over’s and has a coupon for a free facial in our coupon book! Mary Kay also supplies a full line of make-up and fragrances. You can see why Mary Kay is a debt free company when clinical testing is done for Mary Kay in independent laboratories where volunteers are supervised by independent board certified dermatologists and ophthalmologists. Mary Kay goes beyond what is required by law for safety and performance with their products which is some of the many reasons why Leticia loves to share her skin care line with us.

Elections: We have a need for a president. Joe, our treasurer is only temporarily filling in and will be taking a leave of absence this summer.
Speaker: Robert Klemer was our speaker today. He sells automobiles for Cardinale Way, and fine gold jewelry. If you are looking for a car Robert can help you, not only with Toyota, but many other brands as well. He is a broker for Subaru and Cardinale can also match or beat any price on Audi, Mazda, Nissan, Honda, GMC and Hundi. They can have the make, model and color equipped to your liking for you within 24-48 hours. They even sell Honda snow blowers and generators! A little known fact about purchasing from Robert is that you will save over $400. If you purchase in Nevada, they tack on large hidden document fees and smog fees and make you process your own registration. With Robert there is only a $55 document fee and your car is registered and good to go out the door so you save by purchasing from Robert and he can match any price! Living in Douglas or El Dorado County is another advantage since we are taxed where we live. We have lower sales tax rates than other areas of CA and NV and the tax revenue stays in our communities. Cardinale is an authorized agent for NV DMV. Robert also enjoys selling gold jewelry by appointment and he just finished writing his 3rd novel. Wow!
Next Meeting: March 9th. Nancy from the city of SLT will be our guest speaker. Joe is confirming that with her, and Joe will run the meeting.
Old Business: Sheri is wrapping up our coupon book. We should have it printed in time for the Tahoe Chamber Business Expo on March 25.
