As the CPWC 'year of embracing change' draws to a close, we should take a
moment to thank our Programs Committee for presenting us with some fresh perspectives on food, creativity, each other, healthy living, embracing the moment, and a little wanderlust (both in and outside the community). 

We would also like to thank our Evening Programs and Savvy Women's committees for broadening our horizons and helping us prepare to embrace change in our personal lives!

To our Interest Group Chairs, we sincerely appreciate all you do to keep us engaged in small groups and grow our organizations.

Finally, to our Charity Team ... "Oh what a night!" Fabulous job all around! Thanks to everyone who was able to attend, help with, and contribute! To those who were unable to attend, please consider Donating here ... it's not too late!

We hope to see you all at our closing luncheon on May 11.

Please contact Janet or Lisa if you have any questions. 

Thank You to everyone who donated to our Charities this year; through contributions, sponsorships and your time!
SummaryCharity Summary 

The Charity Committee is pleased to report that 150 people came out and rocked with Yacht Rock Schooner to benefit Gathering Industries on April 28th. The weather was pitch perfect, and the Farnsley's home proved the perfect party grounds. Thank you to those of you who volunteered your time to help make the event as great as it was. We raised close to $20,000 for Gathering Industries. View the album
