Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Where do I begin but to sincerely thank all of you for the cards, e-mails , and your kind words of sympathy on the tragic death of my brother, Johnny. It’s been a tough time for my family but we are sharing with each other all the good times we had with Johnny and this is helping to handle the loss. I am so fortunate to have such caring friends.

Bravo, Charlotte to you and your committee for giving us an enjoyable evening at Oyster Mill Playhouse. The play, "Bus Stop" 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 evening we shared with our members and husbands. The meal was delicious but the cupcakes were the HIT!!! This year we started a new tradition honoring a member of our community with our "Woman of the Year award. This year’s recipient was Velma Coffman but unfortunately she was unable to attend the banquet. The Home Life Committee is planning to visit Velma to present the award. We are a great group, aren’t we????

Don’t forget to submit your membership renewal by June 30th with your committee selections. Send all information to Deb Hammond.

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

As I said last month our club really worked hard this year and we were able to give 3 $750 scholarships. Next year we are looking to support Girls on the Run, a Blood Mobile, and support New Hope Ministries and their backpack project. In order to do these projects we need all of you to give some time out of your busy schedules and I know you will. You are a very caring group of women that I am proud to know.

Have a wonderful and safe summer and we will see all of you at our first meeting on Monday, September 21st at 6:30 pm at our covered dish dinner/meeting. Look for the September newsletter that will give more information about the meeting. Our annual picnic will be held at Deb Hammond’s home and that information can be found in this newsletter.
