It is my pleasure to welcome you to the new year of Faculty Women’s Club!
As a new arrival several years ago, I have so much appreciated the friendships and inclusiveness found in this organization. What a dynamic, vibrant, and capable group of women! It is a delight to participate and an honor to serve.
Such a good year lies ahead! Sharon and Sara have wonderful programs planned. Our winter social will be festive and memorable with Mary and Belinda at the helm. All the interest groups sound fun to me, and I know there are definitely one or two for you as well. With the holiday tea auction, raffle tickets, and scholarship letter fundraiser, we will be challenged to again provide thousands of dollars for UNMC student scholarships.
We look forward to this year with happy anticipation. We have the opportunity to broaden our worlds, enjoy friendships old and new, develop new skills, and ease the financial burden for a number of UNMC students. What a deal!
Thank you for your participation, assistance, and your smiles.
Hi FWC friends,
It’s the morning after the Big Snow – and quite nice here in the House!
I am looking forward to the Winter Social at the Greek Islands on February 15 and thank Mary and Belinda for organizing it. Bringing wedding photos is such a fun idea and it will be interesting to see if we recognize ourselves! I sure hope you’re planning to attend. Reservations are being accepted until February 10.
The scholarship fund raising letter is out, thanks to Janelle and Nancy. Please consider an even more generous donation this year, as student costs have risen, and, also, we have added another scholarship with the College of Public Health.
Unbelievably, it’s time to start thinking about next year, with just one “regular meeting” remaining, in April. If you did not volunteer for a committee chairmanship or officer’s job at our last meeting, please consider doing so. This organization runs so well, due to the combined efforts of its skilled and generous members. Please think about what you’d like to do to help next year go smoothly.
Filling the presidency is particularly important, as we have no president-elect. Many members have a similar situation, with limited time, out of town trips, family and other community commitments. I have found this job less time consuming than other presidency positions I have held and am so impressed with the high level of reliable expertise from all the board. If you are so inclined to consider the presidency, please know it is not as time consuming or threatening as you may have assumed.
Looking forward to the social, the April meeting, and the May Spring Luncheon!
