President’s Message

February 2020

I want everyone to know that after reading all the reports, that I’m so excited at all we’ve done during this past year.  We can all be proud that we had 1,529 hours of service to help those in need, our community, etc.  All the reports had wonderful information and great narratives.  Thanks to all of you for all your special efforts.  I do hope we will win certificates again this year on the District and State Level.  I always get excited doing the report, as I can see other projects that we can do either as a change or in addition to what we already have been doing.  Keep in mind that “change” can sometimes be a good thing.

Thanks to Judy for installing our new members, with Maureen’s help.  It was so impressive to see so many new members each holding a lighted candle.  I’m sure that each of their light will shine and add to us as we continue to provide help through our existing projects as well as helping as more needs arise.

Keeping this in mind, this year our nominating committee has begun putting together a new  slate of officers as well as department and committee chairs for the 2020-2022 year.  Please consider a position for the new term.

It’s also time to think about Achievement Day, April 8th.   Please consider entering one of the contests, either Arts Creative or Conservation.  Each of us have special talents.  Let’s show our talents by entering the contests of your choice, whether it be baking, photography, sewing, crocheting, knitting, or flower arranging, etc.  Entry forms must reach Cyndi Marinese or Lisa Herschfield by March 23rd.  If you need forms, please let me know. They can be emailed.  Actual entries go to Achievement day on April 8th.  Also consider joining us for a fun-filled day.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the February 27th meeting with 6 dozen cookies.  We will fill bags of cookies for the Homestead, making their residents very happy.
