FROM THE PRESIDENT
Cheers to you all!
November is the month to reflect and be thankful! These are the words used in last year’s message, and remain relevant for our Group this year. We are being pushed and mocked, by the relentless selfish left. STAY the course, support our amazing President, his wise agenda and policies, and hark to your natural skepticism of our fake news! Another election year is in our near future. The many liberals I chat with are second guessing their faith in the self-serving representatives we have this is a very good sign.
This year we are changing the guard for our Santa Monica Republican Women Federated Group. A goal of many volunteer leaders is to leave an organization better positioned upon departure than when entering a term. My challenge was to keep the momentum Linda Grossman set – and accelerate it if possible. By no quirk that was achieved, due to the many talented and dedicated ladies who stepped up in their roles to deliver success.
Pat Peterson was recognized early in her membership as a force for big thinking, and exciting actions. She will lead this group to stratospheric new heights as demonstrated by her amazing speakers for the past 2 years and her organization skills and appeal in our community with the recent wildly successful PAC fundraiser!! BRAVO!!
Iris Jue is another amazing gifted member, sharing her talents and generosity throughout these past two years and committing to another two! She keeps our finances and reports spotless and on time, and has merged her WLA friendships and members with our group in the most pleasant way!
Our Membership Trio is the absolute perfect blend of energy, enthusiasm, welcoming recruiters, with impeccable administrative tracking ever to have in any group I for one have experienced!! Thank you Sheri Sharpe, Gail Flyer, & Cathy Knight!!
Kris Losito has a no-nonsense approach and simply gets it done, whatever we need – an asset to any team!
Then we have our Corresponding Secretary, Irma Hopkins who is connected in many communities on many levels – besides being so lovely and helpful – she is strategic and generous with her talents!
Within the board, there are appointments and these folks have kept much of our activities on track – Doree Gerold thank you for or NEWS and timely issues with the best format!! Kari Czer you are a glue, keeping the club connected to the community thank YOU!! Nancy Grant, thrilled you will be taking on more responsibilities which are instinctive to your organized nature thank you for making everyone feel welcomed through the years with your warmth!!
Most grateful to have had Linda Grossman accessible for the entire term – I accepted the position to give you a break, but it has been you have provided the support necessary to enjoy this role!
Time to close out and celebrate what is to come! Strap in and enjoy!
Thanksgiving, Channuka, Christmas, and New Year’s BLESSINGS to YOU ALL,
