Message from the President

Dear Club Member,

This is an exciting time for The Red Land Area Women’s Club. The planning is already starting for speakers for upcoming meetings which will both help and educate. Fundraising activities we will be focusing on this year are the Apple Festival, Soup/Bake Sales on Election Day, and a Spring Play. The President’s Project 2016/17 will be focus on hunger in our local community.

A special thank you to the Banquet committee and what a wonderful evening we shared with our members and husbands. The meal was delicious and the cupcakes were once again the HIT!!! "Woman of the Year" awarded to Sue Rudy was so heartfelt. Rumor has it that Sue would like to become a member of our club.

Don’t forget to submit your membership renewal by June 30th with your committee selections. Send all information to Karen Mamrak. We are looking for individuals to co-chair Conservation and Education. Please contact Karen or myself if you are interested. Don’t hesitate we have seasoned individuals who are there to guide and assist. This is a great way to get involved in the club’s activities.

Deb Brenneman needs all information for the Yearbook (President’s Message, committee information, speakers, membership information and budget) by August 15th.

Have a wonderful and safe summer and we will see all of you at our first meeting on Monday, September 19th @ 6:30 at Red Land Community Library for our covered dish dinner/meeting. Look for the September newsletter for more details. Our annual Summer Picnic will be held on August 15h, Apple Butter making September 8th, and Apple Festival September 24th more information can be found in this newsletter.
