Club President's Message

A monthly message from the current club president:

March, 2021                   

President’s Pen

Hi all,

   I hope you all are keeping in good spirits and health. There is so much club activity and opportunities for club members to engage.

   Our Fundraising committee has arranged for three excellent fund raisers for us to connect with the community.  The immediate opportunity to share with friends, coworkers, and community at large is our Applebee’s fundraiser on Wednesday, March 3rd.  See more in this newsletter.  SICC will, for the first time, be a part of the Centre Gives virtual event in May. And, many of us are looking forward to painting with Jackie (Cheers to Art) to be scheduled later in the summer.  In addition, members will be updated at March’s meeting on planning and ways for all to contribute to our signature fundraiser – our 3rd Golf Classic!

    By the time of this newsletter, members will have had the opportunity to participate in the first of four Strategic Planning Zoom meetings.  Please reference email on this to all from me on February 17th.  Reach out to any of the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) members if you have questions.

   Carolyn F. and Ann L. are busy as the Nominating committee soliciting for our 2021/2022 slate of officers – no small task!   Finally, the Member Education/Club Growth and Development committee (Brenda W., Anne F. and Michele H.) will be the stars of our April member meeting with some fun and informative activities for us!

   There continues to be positive feedback on the “We Are SICC” newsletter section – featuring member highlights.  Members who have not contributed and wish to do so are encouraged to send to Linda. We hope to keep this section of the newsletter going to spotlight club positions and committees.

   We are finding creative ways to continue our positive impact in the community. Thank you all!

   I hope to see (or hear) you all at our March Zoom member meeting with our guest speakers, the PSU Humphrey’s!  (Please let Marian or me know if you are having technical difficulties to join our meetings.)

Remember my challenge to all. Which SICC sister will you take time to get to know better in 2021?   

Donna
