Message from the President

Happy New Year to all our members and families!! As we begin the New Year 2015 let us all remember our Collect when it states:

May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face without self-pity and without prejudice. May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous. Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, and gentle. And as it ends: O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.

Thanks to all of you our fundraising projects the last few months have been fantastic and so far we are able to present two graduate scholarships of $750.00. As you remember we raised the amount from $500 to 750.

Our speaker for our meeting on Monday, January 19th at 7:30 PM will be Mary Beth Long, Librarian at the Red Land Community Library sharing information on “Public Libraries”. “Making Libraries Rock” is our state President Vicki Trimmer’s project and I feel we have embraced this project by having speakers from the public school libraries, Christine Metcalfe and Mary Beth Long from our local public library. We would like all members to join the public library so make sure you all stop by and sign up or renew. For your convenience, an application is attached. Please return your completed application to me at 325 Fairway Drive, Etters, PA 17319. Our goal is to have 100% so we can be recognized at our district meetings.

We were recognized in the Pennsylvania ClubWoman in December for all the many projects we do such as Habitat, apple butter, soup and bake sales and selling pies. We should have another recognition in the next one, keeping my fingers crossed. We need to continue to pat ourselves on the back. --We are awesome!!! Have a great month.
