Dear Sisters in DKG,
Teri, Mardine, and I are so excited about the year we have planned for
you! You will get details and calendars after our August 13 board
Our luncheon at the Wenatchee Golf & Country Club was a great success in
my mind…I hope you had as much fun as I did. Geneva is irreplaceable,
but I will try my best to do a good job as president with lots of help
from my board. Our scholarship winners should be about ready to head off
to their respective schools with our help. That means we are about ready
for our new year also.
Teri has a great program planned around the theme…And They Said It
Couldn’t Be Done! If you have any suggestions for new members, let
Mardine know so she can contact them to invite them to our September
meeting. Mardine will also include a membership spotlight each month in
the newsletter. We will continue to meet at the First United Methodist
Church with meeting at 5:00, dinner at 5:30, program to follow. Come
early to socialize. Geneva has casino trips scheduled for the year so
plan to enjoy a Saturday at Mill Bay each month and support our
scholarships. Pauline and I will get together and update our phone tree
so all will be called. Kaye Ryan has generously volunteered to be our
cook & decorator with lots of help from us. We will have a sign up sheet
for monthly meals and clean up at the September meeting. Raffle baskets
need people to prepare them each month. Money from the baskets goes to
subsidize our June luncheon to make it more affordable for our sisters.
You can sign up for those in September also.
We plan to continue our January resupply effort to help teachers in area
schools when they need items replaced. School supplies are on sale now
so it’s a good time to get some crayons colored pencils, dry erase
markers, glue or glue sticks, spiral notebooks, and regular markers. We
will collect items for that effort each month.
If you are interested in attending the State Fall Board meeting in
Yakima, Sept. 28-29, let me know so I can get you a registration form or
go to the state website to download one.
Looking forward to seeing all of you in September.
