Women’s History Month

Is your club doing something to celebrate Women’s History Month? An easy idea is to celebrate the women in your club. All clubwomen are amazing, but is there someone in your club that has achieved something? Throughout March, we will be highlighting some special women and we would love to include our members. Send a short description of your member and what she accomplished to and we highlight her in the eConnection.

Annual Convention

We understand some people are having trouble making a hotel reservation at the Tropicana. We are working on solving this issue so if you are put on hold for over five minutes, are told the block is filled or given a price other than $59 tell them you will call back later and send Susan Fosdick an email,

Civic Engagement & Outreach District Day

Save the date for your District CEO Day, Tuesday, March 29th. You should be receiving information shortly. This was very successful on Zoom with club members learning about networking with local organizations. Being in-person will allow members to interact with the speakers on a more personal level.

Special State Project Northern Fundraiser

There is still time to send in your Registration for the Special State Project Fundraiser. Help support Operation Chillout while enjoying some wine. Maybe you will get lucky and win the 50/25/25 or a basket. You will have the opportunity to “buy” a bottle of wine for $10. The bottle you receive will be at least worth $10 or it could be worth more.

Donations of wine and raffle baskets are much appreciated. Just contact Patricia Dahl, with your basket theme and any other donations.
