Message from the President

Where do I begin but to sincerely thank all of you for your support and hard work each and every one of you have put into the past club year; there is so much to be proud of. Also, thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and kind words this past year; my personal life has been a roller coaster. I’m thankful that 2017 have been relatively quiet.

Great effort by all for making the soup and bake sale a success; $420 soup/$72 apple butter/$228 baked goods for a total of $720 profit.

Our first Isaac’s fundraiser was also a success in raising $130. Easy fundraiser thanks Karen! Look forward to another night out in November. Also, mark your calendar for September 14th for lunch at Darrenkamp’s.

Bravo, Karen to you and your committee for giving us an enjoyable evening at Oyster Mill Playhouse. The play "Social Security" was awesome and enjoyed by all. The punch and cookies were delicious and WOW the baskets were a hit. Thanks again.

A special thank you to the Banquet committee and what a wonderful afternoon we shared with our members and husbands. The meal was delicious and cupcakes were wonderful. Deb Trimmer and Nina Myers "Woman of the Year Award 2017" they were so humble. It is heartwarming the commitment these two women have they are so dedicated in helping the hungry in our community. Great article in the Community Courier. The club has also contributed to the Red Land Food Ministry and helping the homeless in the West Shore School District. We are a great group, aren’t we????

Don’t forget to submit your membership renewal with your committee selections to Karen Mamrak.

As always our club really worked hard this year and we were able to give 2 - $750 scholarships, Girls on the Run, Jane Miller Dental. Excess funds will be distributed to the Red Land Library, Red Land Senior Center and the Jane Miller Dental Fund.

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