President's Message

BWA Sisters,

Well, it's upon us ladies! The holiday season is here. Whatever you celebrate, my wish is for each and every one of you to have a heartfelt, Happy Holiday.

Tis the season to remember how fortunate we are.  Take time to reflect about those in need. Whether its adding to the Salvation Army kettle, or dropping off a toy at  a Toys for Tots location, or picking up the phone and calling one of our wonderful  members who deal in the not-for-profit world to request a wish list for their orgainzations, let us make a concerted effort as a group to give back this holiday.    I look forward to seeing everyone dressed in their holiday attire at our December meeting.  Melissa Milroy, will be treating us again to those "must have" items, and of course, our annual holiday rafffle to benefit our scholarhips.    Hapy Holidays  Holly Moody
