Dear Wonder Women
Happy new year. I hope you have escaped the flu. I came home from my
Arizona and Nevada vacation with a cough that has been with me for about
four weeks. I didn’t want to spread germs so I missed the board meeting,
but your wonderful Wonder Women board members carried on with the
responsibilities of planning for the rest of our year. Even the casino
group made the January trip without me—thanks to Pauline and Denise.
I hope you are excited that we are meeting on February 13 at 4:45 for
meet and greet, dinner, and our program at the First United Methodist
Kay would like those who volunteered to
bring soup for the February meeting please contact her. She knows Rosa
but not the other two.
We need a volunteer to create our yearly scrapbooks. If you are
interested contact Teri 663-1295.
Mardine is still collecting school supplies for teachers. Currently we
do not have any gel pens or colored pencils. The board approved a $100
contribution to each of the Wenatchee and is Eastmont school districts
for Mardine’s committee to augment where needed. Also, don’t forget the
items the teachers might need/want such as Post-it notes, hand
sanitizer, hand lotion, etc. Thanks for your help.
Mardine will chair the Nominating committee for the 2018-2020 biennium.

Vice President as a voting member of the Board to be in charge of

standing vote of members present at the regular meeting when the vote is
2. Approval by 2/3 of the votes cast shall be required for the adoption
of the amendment to or revision of the chapter rules.
I also think it is time to designate a bigger percentage of the casino
money to scholarships.
Our February program will include a raffle, singing, celebrating
birthdays, and an art project which will hold hand-written notes of
encouragement for local Wonder Women in education. Our speaker, Alix
Whitener, is the daughter of our chapter member, Kriss Crilly, who will
share with us her insect collecting trip to Guatemala last spring. She
is a PhD candidate studying tree fruit entomology at Washington State
University‘s Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center. She studies pests
of cherries, particularly spotted-wing drosophila, which is a fly! She
will show us some of her insect collection frames and will host a
question/answer session at the conclusion of her presentation.
Charlotte sent a note of appreciation for the opportunity to come
together and celebrate the wonderful Christmas holiday. We gathered at
Colonial Vista in Wenatchee at noon on December 2 and brought cookies,
other foods, and gifts. We were entertained charmingly by Vinny Lee’s
Eastmont students. We visited, ate, and sang carols (accompanied by Tami
