Our November RSFBPW Luncheon/Meeting
President's Message
Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests:

Happy Turkey Month!! November is one of my favorite months of the year. Holidays are upon us and if you don't plan, it can become very overwhelming with all the activities and responsibilities. Let's not forget what Thanksgiving is all about - GIVING THANKS! I think the tradition of going around your Thanksgiving Table and asking each person to share something they are thankful for is such a great tradition. Let's face it - we have a lot to be thankful for!!

November if our Member Holiday Shopping Bazaar. There will be lots of things to chose from so be sure to bring your checkbook and support the group. This is a great opportunity to get some of your holiday shopping done early!

We will also be doing a tribute to Betty Potter Englishbee. All the vendors will be bringing a potted plant, in honor of Betty, to raffle off, in addition to their other raffle gifts. Also, if you'd like to share a memory about Betty, be prepared to do that during our meeting in November. Time will be limited so prepare a short tribute ahead of time.

December is our Holiday Party. We always pick a charity to highlight and raise money for. This year we have selected " A Night to Remember Prom ". This is a charity that puts on a full prom including hair, makeup, dresses, transportation and all the entertainment for special needs kids. Here is a short video!!   https://vimeo.com/268722412  You can bring a check, cash or gift cards and gently used prom dresses and accessories to our next meeting and give them to Sarah Morgan. I would love to have this be a donation from our club. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

We would like to invite any members interested in being on the board or possibly assisting a board member in 2019 to join us at the next meeting. We welcome any member who would like to give back more to our RSFBPW group. We look forward to having you attend our meeting! The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. sharp before the luncheon every month.

I am very thankful for this group and all it's members. It's been such a joy to get to know so many of you and I love the connections I've made. I look forward to making more connections with those of you I haven't met yet. I'm sure you all feel the same way. (There is no secret word this month-our vendors will have raffle prizes).

Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.

Julie Hetherington

November Meeting-A Tribute to Betty Potter Englishbee
We will honor Betty Potter Englishbee at our November meeting.
Betty Potter Englishbee
October 27,1933 - Oct 8, 2018

Betty Potter Englishbee was one of our longest active member who faithfully attended the monthly meetings year after year and served our members behind the scenes for years, she preformed the administrative duties of adding new members to the internet and our annual directory. She flawlessly organized lunch meals for groups with all of their diet requests, she keep the Board members appraised of new members, guests and roosters, she bought birthday balloons for our birthday girls. To replace Betty we will need 5 women to do all of the work she tirelessly preformed for over 20 years. We don't have any of the old records, but we believe Betty was a member of the RSFbpw for 30 years and a Board member for probably that long too.

If you have a special story you'd like to share about our beloved Betty, we will be taking a few minutes to share our love and appreciation for Betty with our members at our November meeting.

Shout-Outs and Testimonials
We may run out of time at our meetings to share our testimonials for each other's services, products, and community announcements. We encourage you to write your praise and mail an email or note to the member who you want to applaud. Send your friends a special email sharing your testimonial about the member you are highlighting. Post your Shout-Out on our RSFBPW Facebook page and on your own FB page.

We offer Shout-outs and testimonial time at the end of many of our meetings, however it depends on the time left after our speaker has concluded their presentation. We do not offer testimonial time at our November and December meetings because of the length of the program. We encourage you to pass out your information, flyers, handouts and community announcements during the open networking time which is between 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. 

You may also want to use your 20 second commercial time during the meeting to share your business event or announcement with the group and invite interested members to pick up a flyer with more details in the back of the room. Thanks for cheerfully working with us!
A Gentle Reminder about Spamming RSFBPW Members
Members and visitors must individually ask each member for permission to place them on any form of mass communication-email blasts, newsletter lists, U.S. Mail lists or group texts. Without each member's individual permission, we consider this type of communication to be an act of spamming. To build long-term relationships with members please write personal notes and emails first and after developing rapport, ask these members only for permission to place them on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.   
If you are interested in becoming a member of our women's Rancho Santa Fe, Business and Professional Women's Association, you must attend two meetings as a visitor, then apply for membership. We have 3 members per category, and if the category is not filled, you can submit the application to one of our board members for consideration. If the category is filled, we encourage you to continue to attend our meetings and network with our members. You can apply when the position opens.
