The Sedona Welcomers Club came together on Wednesday, April 23, at the Hilton Sedona for their monthly luncheon, welcoming guests and hearing from the Sedona International Film Festival Executive Director Patrick Schweiss.Patrick Schweiss, guest presenter, gives the inside scoop on celebrity gossip from the Sedona Film Festival on Wednesday, April 23, to the Sedona Welcomers. Sedona Welcomers meetings are held eight times a year on the fourth Wednesday of the month with luncheons and presentations by interesting speakers. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, May 28. A moment of silence was held on the April 23 meeting for former member Laura Wynne, who died the previous day.

Before Schweiss took the stage, however, Chairwoman Gina Cassidy honored member Laura Wynne, who had died the day prior.

“She holds a place in all our hearts. She had a great sense of humor — her humor was infectious. If you were ever around Laura and you didn’t laugh, I don’t think you were human,” Cassidy said. “She will be missed.”

Cassidy added that it just so happened that Schweiss was one of Wynne’s favorite speakers.

Schweiss, meanwhile, kept the mood light and upbeat in his signature manner, noting that this year the Welcomers provided him with a more mobile microphone than he’s had in the past.
