Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Welcome back everyone I can’t believe I am starting my second year as president. The time seems to fly by as our club continues to get involved in our community. We have some very interesting programs this year and thanks to the chairmen and their committees for making this possible. We are taking on another project this year: Girls on the Run. Our club will sponsor a girl from Fishing Creek Elementary so that she can participate in the activities that Girls on the Run will offer students.

Our first meeting of the year will be held at the Red Land Library on Monday, September 21, 2015 at 6:30 PM. Remember we are starting an hour earlier. We will have our annual covered dish dinner. So, get your favorite recipe out and bring that delicious dish for all of us to enjoy. You can either bring a meat dish, a salad, or dessert. Remember to bring your own place setting!! (paper plate/plates, napkin, silverware) The Executive Board will supply cups and drinks. I hope you will all bring a guest and if so bring a place setting for her. We will also have a fun speaker to start off the year. Laughter is contagious and good for your mental health. Mrs. Helen Szollosy – Laughter, Let’s Get Serious will get us started on a positive note and keep us smiling as we leave the building

Hey, if you are available on Wednesday, September 9th at 7:30 am we could sure use you and your husband if he is available to help make our apple butter. It’s a great day and we really need a lot of hands to get this project wrapped up that day. Bring a chair, drinks, and a dish to share.
