The Executive Committee invited Prince Georges Council Member Mary Lehman to attend our April 2nd meeting; and she has accepted our invitation. We plan to express our appreciation to her for providing our Club with a check for $2000 from her Fiscal Year 2014 Special Appropriation Grant Fund. We are going to share our planned goals and activities for 2014 and 2015 with her. If you have any suggestions or questions for her, please let me know. I ask each of you to
pray for this upcoming meeting with Mary. We all are looking forward to our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon here at the Center on April 16th. So, if you are one of our volunteers, please sign up with your $20 check which will be returned to you at the luncheon.
A special Thank You to our Newsletter Editor, Nan Tripp, for providing our members with monthly news of the Club in such a professional presentation. The pictures of our Officers and Committee Chairs were outstanding. Our Editor puts in many hours to make our newsletter so successful and informative. I hope you will express your appreciation to her for this and the many other duties she performs for us.
I want you all to know it’s a real pleasure for me to serve as your President this year. Thank you all for attending our General Meetings. When new members join our Club, I have the honor of calling and welcoming them. I was very pleased to welcome Mr. Bill McLaughlin to our Club this week. When he said he enjoyed attending our meeting, noticed that we were well organized, and wanted to be a part of the team, that ―sure made my day!
The strength of our actions should match the strength of our words.
