Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Welcome to the month of love!!! Remember every day to tell your loved ones that you love them whether it be your husband, significant other, or your children and grandchildren. Anyone watch Doc Martin??? Louisa and Doc are seeing a psychologist about their marriage and they have homework that I think we all need to follow. Make sure you hug your husband or significant other at least three times a day and each of you give a positive comment about each other. Try it. John and I have had fun with it. Anyway, enjoy Valentine’s Day.

Looking forward to our “Art’s Night” and hopefully many of you will come out to see the artistic talent we have at Red Land High School and within our club. You will have time to look at the art work and who won what, enjoy some snacks and drinks, and participate in a short meeting.

Don’t forget to bring food items for the food bank. They were very pleased with the items we brought last month so continue to carry on the theme of items other then canned goods: cake mixes, cans of icing, puddings, jello, pancake mixes, syrup, peanut butter, jelly, macaroni and cheese, boxed mashed potatoes, cereal, Kleenex, toilet paper, paper towels.

Check your calendars and plan to attend our play on Sunday, March 6th at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $20 per person. More information in the Chatterbox. Let’s have a sell-out crowd. We can do it!!

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

Happy Valentine’s Day :)




In the spirit for the October meeting.

Our November meeting's speaker, Shelly Brooks,from the Bethesda Mission for Women and Children in Harrisburg, gave a very informative presentation about the Mission. It has been providing hope and healing to hurting and homeless people in the Harrisburg area since 1914: one MAN, one WOMAN, one CHILD at a time.

Sue Rudy shares information about the Silence of Mary Home, a diverse nonprofit organization providing a full range of services to meet the complex needs of the homeless and at risk in our community. Sue and her husband, Vern, founded The Silence of Mary Home in 1999.

Debra Crandall from Penn Waste gave a very informative presentation on Recycling at the April meeting.
