Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Christmas is time for love, giving, family traditions, and joyful celebrations. To show BHRW support to President Trump, member Diane Gruber drafted a letter to the President, praising his success and reaffirming BHRW’s support for him. I read the final letter at our Christmas Party to the approval of the members. All the BHRW officers signed the letter. I think everyone felt the sentiments of the season by taking action to support President Trump during a challenging period of history. I encourage all of you to actively support our President and participate in the 2020 re-election.
BHRW had a wonderful 2019. Our program brought you inspiring speakers, thought-provoking candidate conversations, fun social activities, engaging conventions and heartwarming charitable projects. We also earned the coveted NFRW Diamond Achievement Award.
As we move into 2020, let’s take a new look at our club’s philanthropy. We can clarify our goals, assess our current program and consider new charities or activities. Our Summer 2019 newsletter detailed our existing program. See: https://www.bhrwf.org/uploads/4/5/2/3/45231705/bhrw_newsletter_summer_2019_final.pdf The Board and I are interested in your insight and suggestions for 2020 philanthropy. Personally, I would like our donations to help produce a future for others that was not going to happen “anyway.” I’d like our efforts to make a difference and be news- worthy. Our projects should include gifts of our time, talents and treasure.
Thanks to so many of you who joined us at Gail’s home for our Christmas Party and officer installation. It was a great kick-off for the season for me and my family. Hoping all BHRW members had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you soon!
