I can’t believe my first year as your president is coming to a close. Wow!!! What a year we have had! We have welcomed new members who have joined a committee and got involved right away. Our successful apple butter sale, pie sale and the two soup and bake sales have allowed our club to contribute to our community in a big way. A special thank you to all club members for supporting these fundraisers so that we can continue to spread our wings and reach further into our community.
Hoping to see a lot of you at the Spring Banquet on Monday, May 18th. This year we are starting a new tradition and honoring a member of our community with our "Woman of the Year award.
Don’t forget to submit your membership renewal by June 30th with your committee selections. I am proud to say that all my committee chairmen have agreed to stay on for another year. If you are coming to the banquet you can give your form and check to Kim – please put in an envelope.
Don’t forget to vote on May 19th and to also support our Soup and Bake Sale at the Fishing Creek Community Building.
I am so proud to say I am president of the Red Land Women’s Club.
