January 2018


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 Church.

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.

The Board has an item for your consideration: “Add position of Second Vice President as a voting member of the Board to be in charge of membership.”

—— Robert Sez: According to Zeta
Chapter Rules, Article X, Section B,
1. Vote on amendments to or revisions of the chapter rules shall be by standing vote of members present at the regular meeting when the vote is taken.
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 Lopushinsky).


Wow, lots of news this time!
