Expect Great Things

As of July 1st, I have officially begun my biennium as our chapter president. I welcome any advice as I begin my two years as your president.  Also, please let me know if you have something you want announced in my newsletters. Here’s what we have going on for July and August.

Upcoming Dates to Remember:

  • The Membership Committee is meeting July 23rd at 11am at Sue Werner’s house to assemble our chapter year books and photo albums.
  • Book Club is meeting Thursday July 26th at 6pm at Riccardo’s Restaurant.  The book we are discussing is Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance.  Contact Glenda Klein if you plan to attend: glendaklein@sbcglobal.net
  • The Executive Board Meeting is Tuesday July 31st at 11am at Itasca Country Club. We will share committee reports and plan for the 2018-19 year.
  • The Educational Excellence and Special Projects Committees have invited previous grant recipients, mentors and other interested members from their committees to a pot luck dinner hosted at Peggy Gire’s on August 6th at 6pm.  This is a wonderful way for our chapter to stay connected with our girls in college and letting them know we are here to support them.  If you want more information about this dinner contact Denise Pawelczyk.
  • The Golf Group is out on the links enjoying their Thursdays playing golf.  They continue to play at various area golf courses.  If you want to start swinging your golf clubs and enjoy a relaxing day playing golf with other chapter members contact Stephanie Grande.
