Presidents’ Message April 2018

Hi, ladies,

Thank you everyone for your patience and cooperation at the March meeting when we voted for our new board. In order to get our board installed at our April meeting as our by-laws state we had to do the vote that night. Unfortunately, Clara was under the weather, therefore, Joanne, one of the committee members, took over the duties at the last minute. All things considered, without any notice, Joanne did a superb job. Thank you, Joanne!

Also, thanks to all your hard work at bingo, we were able to give away a lot of money to many needy organizations, many of which are located in West Deptford. We will be asking the police K-9 Unit, the fire department, Safety Town, West Deptford Library and the Historical Society to attend our June meeting in order to present them with their checks.

April is: Autism Awareness Month, National Child Abuse Prevention Month, National Volunteer Month & Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Spring Conference will take place on April 19 at the Pennsauken Country Club. A few of our members plan to attend this year. Those attending are: Carol F, Carol M, Linda J, Dorothy, Tannis, Debbie, Joan, Sandy and Cynthia.

If you haven’t purchased your raffle tickets for the beautiful blue and yellow quilt, please consider doing so. The money raised goes towards our Special State Project, Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey. Tickets cost $10 each and can be purchased by contacting Susan Chambers at The drawing takes place at convention in Atlantic City in May.

Carol, Louise, Debbie and Denise H will be attending convention May 7-9 this year. Sandy, Joan, Carol M and Kim will attend the convention on Wednesday. This happens to coincide with our monthly meeting on Tuesday evening. We have decided to change our meeting date for the month of May to the 24th. Please make a note of this change.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Passover.

In Federation Friendship & Love,
Louise & Carol
