FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT,
Dear Members and Friends:
California is Blessed, Bright and Bold!
The whirlwind of this administration has begun. Ready, Set and Go!
First, Thank you all for the beautiful installation at the 119th CFWC State Convention with Chris Herzog at the helm. The ceremony was perfect using an Aloha theme that Kathi McGraw suggested.
Many Thanks to Past Presidents Pam Ament and Dori Kelsey for the lovely Hawaiian decorations and the Norwalk Woman's Club for the monetary gifts and working members for the reception.
The gift from the CFWC Deans for the lovely briefcase, which is now loaded and ready for the July Boards, and the Chairmen for the wonderful Rosie the Riveter purse and gadget holder. I will treasure these pieces and think of you when I use them. The July Boards are to hear from the Chairmen and District Presidents as to their plans for the next two years.
I am anxious of the July Boards 28,29 and 30th of July at the San Ramon Marriott. Fly into Oakland and Uber with friends to the Marriott about 20 miles away. Please contact the meeting planner Carol Lopez-Lucey with questions and concerns, she is doing a great job of getting everyone's needs met. Please send your registrations to Carol.
The Fall Boards in September will be in the South, yet to be determined where, and the main theme is membership. The February 2023 Boards will be in the North and this meeting is for LEADS and more information for Convention 2023 in the South.
Please note if you are going to the GFWC Convention in New Orleans June 23-30 or for any portion of that time, bring your vaccination card and be prepared to wear a mask at the hotel.
Get your pictures and information page to Toni Lima by July 8, 2022 for publication in the yearbook.
Valerie Barnes services will be in Dublin, CA at 10 a.m. on July 8, 2022. Please contact Carol Lopez Lucey for details. We will all miss Valerie and love and prayers go out to her family. Valerie was a friend to all, and a wonderful mentor to many of us in Federation.
Until next week,
