Top of the Mornin’ to you all
A big thank you to Marianna Wood and Karen Mamrak and their committee for all their hard work in putting together an outstanding Art Night. We always get the nicest and professional judges who make our Art Night so over the top. Of course our Board always comes through with delicious refreshments. So thanks to all of you.
Please plan to attend the next meeting to hear from the Principal, Mr. Edwards, all about Crossroads Middle School and their unique and positive behavior/anti-bullying plan that seems to be accepted by the staff and students.
This year we seem to be ahead of the game, which means we have no officers to vote for especially since Kathy Machamer (one of our new members) took over the office of Corresponding Secretary. We have our Banquet Committee in place: Debbie Hammond, Karen Mamrak, and Kim Lahnstein. As you will read in our newsletter the date and place is set. That’s pretty good for the beginning of March!!
A big thank you to Karen Mamrak who continued to send articles to the Northern York County Community Courier about the great things that our club does for the community. In the March 4th edition we are on the front page in the yellow section advertising looking for nominees for Woman of the Year and then on page 2 at the top the dedication of the Habitat home. We need to continue to shout to the rooftops what we do and Karen has done that and now turns that job over to Kathy Machamer who I know will carry on.
At the board meeting Kim related to us that we have enough money to give two scholarships this year of $750 (we raised the amount this year) and there is a slight possibility that we may be able to give three. Keep your fingers crossed.
The board is looking to spread our wings a little for next year and bring to the club some new ideas in helping in the community and beyond – more later.
Don’t forget your food donations/money for the food bank and books for the students at the elementary schools in our area.
