President's Message
Dear Ladies,
  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Now we're on to the business of fundraising. Our fundraising efforts are for the sole purpose of raising money to help local charities. The more successful we are at these events, the more our charities will benefit. One of our upcoming events is Paint Night on February 8th, a welcome distraction during these winter months. You don’t have to be an artist. Join us and you will be pleasantly surprised at what you can accomplish. April brings our annual Fashion Show, always a much anticipated event and our biggest fundraiser. The theme this year is "Mardi Gras" so be prepared to have a lot of fun! We also have a very special Birthday this month! Let's all give our Best Wishes to Julia Pasqualino on her Milestone 100th Birthday, January 31st. As we go forward in our daily lives, please remember that a small gesture on your part can mean the world to someone else.

Thank you,
Lisa Kahl, President
