A Message from Our President

I am truly honored to be your President for 2020-2021. I had only been in the club for 4 months and was asked to be President-Elect to serve with our then President, Dee Isguzar. I have known Dee for many years and it was very educational working with her last year, learning about the club with all her years being a member. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year is going to be very challenging. I am hoping that things will get back to some kind of normalcy so that we can start meeting face to face for our general membership meetings. Until then, I encourage you all to participate in the monthly Zoom meetings.

Last year we were awarded three awards – (1) 29% Membership Increase Award, (2) 2nd place for Membership and (3) GFWC Florida Honor Score with 100 points or more. This was all due to the leadership of our past President, Dee Isguzar. I hope to see our membership continue to grow, and ask each member to help achieve this.

My President’s Project for this year is the Low Rider Dachshund Rescue of Florida. They are very passionate about rescue and focus on the needs of the dogs, and united in mutual respect for each other. They possess an unyielding drive to save and improve the lives of the dogs that cross their path, and are proud to be working together in a positive manner to make a difference in as many cannine lives as possible. The dachshund is a reminder that you are a master of handling all situations and scenarios. You are capable of crawling out of the most sticky situations at any time. Use your innate sense of humor to look at everything from a different angle. This animal will help you quickly see what you need to do next. They may also be letting us know it is not our job to fix everything. You have got to make room to allow others to find their way. So your next approach is to use a wide-ranging & flexible sense of humor and let it be.

Looking forward to working with all of you this year. Let’s make it a great year!
