Club President's Message

A monthly message from the current club president:

February 2020                         

Hi to all:

Listening to the two amazing women at the AAUW luncheon this week, brings home the point that there are plenty of places in the world where women’s rights and their living circumstances are hard to understand. This happens right here in our country and community as well.  It’s the time to remember the work we do helps others in our community who are truly having times that are hard – like Out of the Cold or Mid-State Literacy Council.  Our fundraising and volunteering make our contributions in the community possible and we should all feel proud of this work.  We are a small group of dedicated members of the community, working to help those who find themselves in tough circumstances – that’s certainly a worthy purpose!

Our night with the Humphrey Fellows coming up reminds us that we are part of reaching out past our local community through our broader organization.  SIA regularly shares stories and experiences from across the globe that help us all to feel connected to a wider community, sharing commitment to help others, and in its own small way keeps our hope for a kinder humanity alive!

Fun events are coming up – a shared evening with the Venture Club for Jeopardy game, a Sip & Paint night later in the year – great times to network and enjoy fellowship with club members and friends.  I hope everyone can participate.

Given that we just celebrated Martin Luther King Day, I thought this quote was appropriate and am sharing again:

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

All the best,

Dee
