" Living The Volunteer Spirit "
Summer is my favorite time of the year, but I know that many clubs take that time off to relax and begin planning for their coming year of activities, so enjoy our warm weather. Being installed as your President was a blur in my mind except for seeing all the welcoming clubwomen in the audience. I thank you all for attending the 126th IFC Convention in April. It was fun and such an honor for me. I look forward to seeing you at the 127th and 128th!
At the moment I have started working on the IFC Directory which will be distributed at your District Convention to all Club Presidents and Community Service Program chairs. It includes all the important dates in the IFC year so please be sure to share with your club members. Remember our website www.gfwcindiana.com and you will soon find our calendar posted. Our manual will contain all the new officers in the state so send in the information as soon as possible.
Our huge GFWC Manual is still posted on line at www.gfwc.org http://www.gfwc.org instead of print and that will save us all from pulled muscles from lugging around a huge book. It is continually updated so I urge you to take a look often, it is easier to absorb by checking a section at a time seeing what is new in your favorite program and contests areas. GFWC shares their ideas on each of the program area like education and conservation.
I know each year I will be visiting each district in late summer and early fall but if you would like to invite me to a club meeting they are always fun to attend. It never ceases to surprise me how different each club can be while performing similar activities, we are always growing and evolving.
On that note, please share what your club is doing: why not appoint someone at every meeting to write a few lines and take pictures of your events, remember the best part of our magazine is seeing the activities around the state.
Hoping to see you all soon!
