Can you believe it is March already? I hope everyone has survived the flu season and is staying warm and enjoying the rain.
The Nominating Committee was formed in February for the next club year. The committee consists of Dolores Kelly as chair with Linda Barbod and Becky Burgstiner. Have you thought about being on the board? Please give it serious thought. Your leadership and fresh ideas are needed.
We will be giving out our Live Your Dream Awards (LYD) at our Program
meeting on March 8th. This year we were able to give out two awards. We hope to be able to increase the number of LYD awards in coming years.
I am looking forward to our District III meeting on March 3rd. It is a great
time to see members from the other clubs in District III and share our
ideas for the Soroptimist mission. If you haven’t been to one of these
District meetings, you should go. I hope to see many of you there. If you
cannot attend, then please make sure you attend our next Program
meeting on March 8th, since the three delegates will be giving a report on the District III meeting after we give out our Live Your Dream Awards.
I am also looking forward to our fundraising events that we plan to have in the coming months. Watch for information for these events in Scribbles, your email, our website and at our future meetings.
I found this quote that I think is so true:
“Everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame, but
greatness, because greatness is determined by service.”
