Message from the President

Let me begin by giving my sincere sympathy to Ginger and her family on the passing of Jim. Our prayers are with all of you and please know we are all here for you.

Kathie, our prayers are with you and Richard as he continues his healing process. We are here for both of you.

I was also notified that JoAnn Haubert's son, Frank, lost his home to fire. Lois doesn’t know any details, but will let everyone know what she finds out.

Looking forward to our art contest this month. The art department, at Red Land High School, is excellent and really challenges their students to think outside the box and to show their creativity. Hopefully we receive a wide variety.

Well, the yearly report has been sent and thanks to all the chairmen who submitted your hours for 2014. We were a busy club and the way 2015 has started we will have more to brag about next January. We had 4 fundraisers, 9 community service projects, spent 887 hours on the projects and fundraisers, raised $4,094.31. We are awesome!!!

Don’t forget to bring food items for the food bank each month or the food bank will take money or checks. This is a hard time for lots of people down on their luck.

February is Women’s Heart Month and let’s all wear RED to the meeting this month.

Happy Valentine’s Day and honor our Presidents

Judy
