Happy New Year To One and All!
We have much to look forward to in 2020 and so much and so many to be grateful to for a successful 2019.
The highlight of our holiday lunch and silent auction in December was Tess Judge's presentation on "Resilience", as she shared her personal experiences in the loss of her dear husband, Warren, who was her partner in our community, as well as their family. We thank her for her inspirational message. We raised $1100 in our silent auction and thank all who participated in purchasing and donating gifts from businesses and gently used articles from home.
Thanks to Vice President James Cofield, those who attended were gifted with a copy of "The Suffragists and the League of Women Voters- A Brief History", authored by Dr. Lin Logan, Ed. D., in celebration of the Centennial Anniversary of the League of Women Voters. Lin is a member of our Dare LWV, has made many presentations on this subject in the past few years, and plans are being formulated to share with our area high school students in 2020. Copies of this History will be available to members and guests who attend any of our Hot Topic
events or forums throughout the year. We hope to obtain funds for printing expenses through grants that we apply for in the near future.
Executive Director of Outer Banks Hotline, Michael Lewis, will be our speaker on Friday, Jan. 10, Noon, at Roosters Southern Kitchen. He will speak on the services Hotline offers to our community, and their new vision for 2020. We hope many of you can attend.
On Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7 PM at KDH Town Hall, member Teuta Shabani Towler, owner of Mitro Digital Marketing, will teach a workshop about different ways you can browse online while protecting your personal information. The second part of the presentation will be about ways to protect your computer from viruses as well as possible hacking. This is open to the general public.
