GFWC GA Monthly Connections
Welcome to summer time! It's a beautiful time to take a break, have a fun trip, or relax unless you are a GFWC Georgia member. Our work never stops! Our leadership team has been busy already preparing for you a wonderful resource of information in our Yearbook and at our annual summer LEADS seminar and Institute. You will not want to miss these events. Mark your calendars for August 17-19 in Athens at The Classic Center. Some of us are also preparing to head to the GFWC International Convention in St. Louis (June 22-26) and I have been crazy enough to continue to train for the Peachtree Road Race on July 4th to help raise awareness of Heifer International's mission. I'd love to have your support by asking each member to donate at least $1.00 towards my goal. Please click the Team Two Chicks button below to learn more and donate to end hunger for women and children around the world. 

In Federated Kindness, 

Tina Daniel
GFWC GA State President 2018-2020

Junior Conference Corner
"Journey to Healthy Living”   In June and July:
Jump into a routine of exercise whether walking, Jogging, or the gym. Plan a time at least 3 times a week for you to exercise and stick with it.  YOU are worth the effort!

Journal your activity, food and progress. This helps you to stay on target with being healthy.

Jazz up your activity.  The same exercise can become boring – try something new. A dance class, yoga class, spinning class, swimming, - the list is endless.

Jam to some music. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you like, it will inspire you to move. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and have some fun.

Project Suggestion for the Summer – Vehicular Heatstroke Education and Tools :
  • On average, 37 children die from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside vehicles.
  • Even the best of parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death. 
  • Even with all the education about vehicular heatstroke, 43 children died in 2017 and 39 in 2016. 
  • Let’s change this cycle and give caregivers the tools to help prevent this tragedy.
  • Let’s join together as the Junior Conference and sponsor a project, post information on our club’s Facebook page and cause the statistics to go Down in 2018. 
  • We can make a difference!

Always Remember:   It Is What You Do for Others That Counts !

In Federation,

Let's continue to highlight Junior Clubwomen and our projects - Please send Jr. club news to Freda Tylor at . Tag your club pictures to the GFWC Georgia Junior Conference Facebook page. We want to see what you are doing.
Tina has selected Girl Scouts of the USA as the President’s Special Project. Make sure your club members visit this link and sign up for the Samoa News to read about what’s happening with the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. During the 2018 – 2020 GFWC Georgia administration, club members will help Girl Scouts unleash the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™  in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership:

G. Go-getter - She’s bold, honest, and determined to succeed. In her mind failure is no reason not to get back up and try again, and again, and again. That explains why  half of all U.S. businesswomen were Girl Scouts. 
I. Innovator - Thinking outside the box is her specialty, so she’s always looking for a creative way to take action. A clear correlation: 75 percent of current female senators were Girl Scouts. 
R. Risk-taker- Courageous and strong, she’s keen to try new things and embrace the unfamiliar. It's no wonder that nearly all of the 40 women who have flown in space were Girl Scouts.
L. Leader - She’s confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world. Here's proof: Every year,  Girl Scouts collectively spend tens of millions of hours improving their communities.
Photos and Fun!
