PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE        Melissa Tice

My thanks to all who helped, contributed and attended the Spring Luncheon celebrating our 85th Anniversary of Empowering Women! We successfully raised over $19,000 for our Scholarship fund. We should be very proud of what we accomplished and how these funds will make a difference in the lives of young women in our community.The feedback I have received about the Spring Luncheon has been positive and all had an enjoyable time but there is always room for improvement. I welcome your input and suggestions for next year.

With the summer months approaching, this means we need to get started on our next major activity/fundraiser: The Community Calendar.Many hands are needed to help with the calendar and I ask everyone to consider how they could assist Mari McDevitt.Please contact her this month to see what activity you could assist with.Many activities can be done in the comfort of your home with the AC on, such as making phone calls to find out important school dates or confirming phone numbers of local houses of worship.

The Scholarship Committee has completed the process of reviewing the applications and interviewing the candidates to finalize our 2018-19 recipients.Thanks to Tish Isack and Marie Walford, Scholarship Co-Chairs and their Committee: Dorothy Lusk, Rosemary Gousman, Carol Kiley, Jean Naugle and Joanne Sheffield for the many hours devoted to choosing our scholarship recipients.Forward Together we can continue to make a difference! Please join us to celebrate our scholarship recipients on May 21st for our Scholarship Reception and Dinner which will be held at the First United Methodist Church on Terrill Road in Scotch Plains. Please sign up to attend the event if you have not already done so by sending $15.00 to reserve your place and to bring a dessert or salad and whether you could help set up or clean up.We are also accepting donations to offset the cost of the meal for the recipients and their two allowed guests.Thank you goes to Kathy Egenton and Ellen Sherry for coordinating the event that is the culmination of our College Club year.

My first year as President was a year of learning.I greatly appreciate all the shared knowledge and help from Past Presidents, the Executive Board and chairpersons that guided me through policy and procedures and thanks to the many members that pitched in to make this a great year.I wish you all a restful summer and look forward to kicking off our 86th year as a club!

NEW/OLD BOARD MEETING

The New/Old Board will meet on Monday, June 11th at 7:00 pm at the home of Melissa Tice, 2271 Old Farm Road, Scotch Plains.We will be having appetizers and desserts.
