Dear BWA sisters,
my tenure as your president is coming to a close I would be remiss if I
failed to thank some of the people who helped our organization continue
to grow and assisted me throughout this year. A big thank you to our
President-Elect, and Treasurer, Diana Plucienkowski, for wearing two
hats and keeping us financially sound, as well as stepping up to lead us
next year. I know our future is bright with you as our leader. A
big thank you also goes out to Tracy Carroll for her continued
willingness to take on any task that is asked of her, and to our
fearless scholarship leader, Jillian Kruger Printz, who helped us return
to the Tower Club with wonderful menus at a price within our budget,
and will be introducing you to 10 very deserving scholarship
recipients. Our programs have been outstanding this year thanks to
Pat Zeiler, who also did double duty by assisting with our last
membership social. I will greatly miss the wise words of wisdom, and
early morning texts(Not), from our past President, Lorna Brown-Burton.
Finally, this organization could not run without our Chapter
Administrator, Debbi Hartman, who does so many things that I cannot even
begin to name them all that enable us to keep going.
It has been my pleasure and honor to serve as your President.
