May we think of Freedom, not as the Right to do as we please, but as the Opportunity to do what is Right.
--Peter Marshall

Happy Birthday, America!

Dear Members and Friends:
We had a wonderful time in New Orleans and wish you all could have been there with us. The GFWC installation ceremony was touching and the after celebration grand with a band and desserts with a glass of champagne to toast the International President Deb Strahanoski.

Next year the GFWC convention will be in Louisville, KY June 10-13, 2023. Hope you can join us.

Please sign up quickly for the July Boards, this is the District Presidents and Chairmen's time to tell of about their plans for this administration. There will be a Communications workshop for us to learn from, and a surprise program on Saturday night.

Happy 4th of July to everyone, say Thank you to a service person. Thank you, Pam Ament and Libby Buckley, for serving our country.

CA is Blessed, Bright and Bold.
From the Editor:
My apologies for two errors in the posting about the Western States Region Conference. In this issue I have provided the "correct" link to the Hilton Anchorage. I have also re-attached the letter from the WSR President and correctly identified it. (It was originally mislabeled as coming from the GFWC Alaska President.)
Western States Region Conference
        August 26 – 28, 2022
        “North to Alaska”

Group ID is “WSR22”

Just a thought ......

America was built on courage, on imagination and on unbeatable determination.
