Summer has ended and we kicked off fall with our Candidates Dinner. It was a wonderful evening with a motivating keynote speaker, Senator Dennis Linthicum. We enhanced the evening with a jazzy band and successful silent auction. The best part of the evening was meeting some wonderful women who are interested in joining us. We look forward to their membership!
Three of our members represented BHRW and OFRW at the NFRW Biennial Convention in Indianapolis, IN. Juanita Lint accepted our Diamond Award, the highest club achievement award. I am so proud of our club: thanks to all who helped make it happen!
The OFRW Biennial Convention is coming soon: October 18 – 20 at the Seven Feathers Convention Center in Canyonville. Juanita Lint and Gayla Hyer will join me as the BHRW delegates. Sue Zike, Laurel Regan and Alison Kettenhofen will be there as OFRW officers and standing committee chair. It’s not too late to register and get in on the fun! It will be a great opportunity to meet members from other state clubs and learn.
We have two more engaging meetings planned this year and in December we will enjoy each other’s company with our annual Christmas party. The year is flying by! Come join us before the year is over!
