It’s March 8th as I write this – International Women’s Day. And it gets me to thinking about all the strong, hardworking, committed, intelligent, successful, dedicated, fun-loving, and soulful women we are blessed to have in our club. Thirty-Five Actives and another Ten Honoraries.
You mean so much to our club. You are a part of our life blood. Your contributions are invaluable. You help make the club what it is. Thank you to our six female Past Presidents, and our current female President Elect Nominee. You’ve helped blaze a trail that sorely needed blazing. Thank you to the additional five current female members who have served on our board of directors. Thank you to our long-time club secretary (without whom the rest of the club leadership would be lost), the publisher of our Pinion, the person who sends the Club Bulletin every week, our website administrator, the founder and leader of Social Change, our club pianist, and our club photographer.
Yes…here’s a shout out to all the ladies: Savita, Sophia, Rosemary, Jasmine, Judy, Chiral, Rose, Nancy, Tina, Maggie, Kimberly M., Sherry, Margo, Hattie, Dana, Audrey, Terri, Stella, Lisa, Kimberly H. F., Padma, Wendy, Merna, Cyndy, Sandi, Debi, Alanna, Tracy, Mary Lynn, Tammi, Gael, Annu, Margaret, Dolores, Sandra, Joy, Lynn, Shirley S., Gwen, Harriet, Judy, Nina, Rose, Bonnie, and Shirley W. Without you, we are not Niles Strong.
