Club President's Message

A monthly message from the current club president:

September 2018                               

 A Note from Dee:

Hi to all,

Summer is speeding away from us – if you have any magic powers to hold it in place for a few more weeks, please exercise them!

As we move into the heart of our club year, we’ve got some new faces, which is wonderful, and new opportunities to volunteer and raise funds to help make a difference for those we support. Each of us, by virtue of belonging to this organization, have made a commitment to help as we are able – it’s what defines us, I think.  We have the call out for volunteers for the PSU Volleyball snack stands – let’s keep Mary from having to send multiple pleas for help  J  Check your calendars and sign up for a few shifts.

We are looking at new ways to raise funds. We had a great discussion at the last meeting and we are rounding up additional information on several ideas that were discussed – bingo nights, a golf skills challenge and a bowling fundraiser.  All of these have merit and might be well attended by the community, with the right promotion and sponsors.  By our October meeting, my goal is to have one to go after and then the real fun begins!

If you did not have a chance to commit to a committee for the year, please email me with your top 2 or 3 - I’d like to bring a fairly complete list to the September meeting of committee members and chairs.  You can find the list of committee’s in your directory.

Our September meeting should be interesting – Barb Dann from Alleycats Quiltworks in Bellefonte will talk to us about the art and history of quilting.  Hope to see all of you there!

A wonderful quote I came across: Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”  Marie Curie
 

All the best,

Dee
