The Morning Session will feature our Day of Service Chairman, Mary Lou Bak, filling us in on the plans for January 2024.

Following the speakers, attendees will work on two Done in One Projects.

  • The first one will be writing notes to Veterans thanking them for their service to our Country. These will be distributed to Veterans Hospitals in time for Veteran’s Day in November.
  • The second project will be filling detergent caps with floral foam and fall silk flowers. These tray favors will be distributed to Nursing Homes in time for Thanksgiving.

The afternoon keynote speaker will be Marci Hopkins, award winning TV personality, host of the Talk Show “Wake Up With Marci”, author and motivational speaker. Following the keynote address, Membership awards will be given along with awards from the GFWC Convention.

To add to the fun of being together at the hotel, we will again be holding a Paint & Sip Party at a cost of $20.00 and you will go home with a finished art project on a 12×12 inch canvas.
