FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT,
Dear Members and Friends:
What a Grand Board meeting we had this weekend! CFWC truly is Blessed, Bright and Bold! There is so much to be excited about!
An attorney litigator, Jana Hoffman of Orange County, told us about laws to protect children in CA, and Kelly Carroll of the American Cancer Society explained the new pediatric gold program.
From Bright Membership skits and testimonials. Bold workshops from Libby Buckley on Policies, procedures and Protocol and from Joyce Opjorden, CFWC Parliamentarian, teaching us all about parliamentary rules and regulations.
We all learned a lot, spent time with each other getting to know each other better, we ate and laughed and talked a lot, with delicious meals from the Hilton/Orange County in Costa Mesa.
Convention 2023 is in the planning stages so save the dates May 18, 19 and 20, 2023. We will be at the Doubletree in Santa Ana. Airport close as we continue to share and learn together.
I just received three texts from Ellen, Kathy and Nancy thanking us for great ideas to take home to their districts and clubs! You are so welcome.
Special purse totes are being given away, as a Thank You gift just for coming to the Boards and being with us. We will have totes at every Board meeting and Convention. Thank you to Debbie Pietraszko for the idea and Sonja Hults for securing the purse totes.
Many Thanks for the long hours to meeting planner Carol Lopez Lucey and ticket sellers Mary Sprague, Kathi McGraw and Edie Seager. Bring lots of $5. bills for these ladies, they will find you!
Executive Committee, you are smart, talented and admired and respected by many of us members for the fine job you do each and every day to help CFWC run smoothly. To the entire Board, we can't do this without you, our most important member! You are valued more than you know! Or maybe I have told you, once, twice, many times and I sincerely mean it.
Thank you for the lovely President's reception Orange District, Sandy Tessier, Linda Queen, and helper Kat George Chu on Saturday evening.
Please join us at the next Board meeting and check us out! I think you will enjoy it.
Love and Aloha,
