Hello and Welcome to July, the beginning of the 3rd quarter and final month of the ABWA fiscal year. July is the birthday month of America where freedom is celebrated, and yet we are not feeling so free. We are still instructed to SIP and wear a mask. Many of us are missing our gatherings, concerts, meetings, rehearsals, eating out….We are missing our families and friends—the list is very long. Many of us are lonely, stressed, worried, and concerned about various issues. Life is just plain different.
Thank goodness we have a sisterhood in ABWA and Pathfinder. Hopefully, you are reaching out to each other, making sure folks are safe and sharing laughter. Phones calls and zoom meetings are a great help, especially when you live alone. We also have classes available through APEX Campus to learn new skills and keep the brain challenged. During this time, let’s count our blessings, get creative, develop new useful habits, and begin the day with a great attitude…..and a good cup of coffee.
Pathfinder will hold a special meeting on July 18 at 9 am, in the parking lot of the Double Tree Hotel. The hotel has been contacted (thanks to Barbara) and authorized our meeting on the side close to the ballroom. You may wish to bring a chair. This face to face meeting is to cover necessary business and a quorum must be present. Please let me know if you will attend, so we can plan accordingly.
We have wonderful news to share. ABWA has informed us of our two scholar-ship recipients. Sanjana Bhanvadia ($2000) and Claire Wiedenfeld ($1000). Claire is the first recipient of the Polly Olson Memorial Scholarship. Congratulations, ladies! Read more about these amazing students in this newsletter.
It’s been my pleasure serving as your Chapter President this past year.
