I am honored to serve as your President this year because of the inspiration that I receive from all of you. Ten years ago Dolores Wilson asked if I would be interested in joining the club, and asked me to sponsor the Woman’s Club Fashion Show. I was so excited, and immediately agreed. I have worked for a few companies in the past, and all agreed to sponsor our club. Since joining the club I have served on the board for several years. Of all the organizations I belong to, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Tarpon Springs is my favorite.
Congratulations to all members of the club. We were presented the Non-Profit Business of the Year award this past May by the Chamber of Commerce, and featured live on Chamber TV. We were represented very well by two of our long time special members, Carole Weaver and Dolores Wilson.
Due to our extraordinary history of 127 years, the focus this year will be on celebrating the history of our accomplishments that have impacted our community, and continue to do so. Our membership increased over 25% last year and we will continue to grow this year. This upcoming year some changes will occur. Please join us at our meetings, socials, and new events.
My President’s Project for this year is Wheelchairs 4 Kids; this is a very successful local program that assists the special needs children throughout the United States. Children and Seniors hold a special place in my heart.
The Dragonfly is the symbol this year to represent our club. It is the symbol of change and light, and when the Dragonfly shows up, it may remind you to bring a bit more lightness and joy into your life and inspire you to bring changes in your life that will help you to reach your full potential.
My three beautiful children, my wonderful husband of 27 years, and my mother are my Dragonflies that have the true meaning and symbolism in my life.
We are going to have a great, fun, fulfilled year and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you because I have several members that are true dear friends.
