Letter From the President
Will you be my Valentine?
I can’t believe it’s already February! The shortest month of the year but an important one nonetheless. Those of you on annual membership renewals have already renewed, the golf tournament is only a few months away and LOVE is in the air!
Most of you aren’t as old as I am but as a child I remember using doilies, lace and red construction paper to transform an ordinary shoebox into the “sacred” receptacle for beloved valentines from my classmates. I also remember being so nervous and excited to see the messages written on the valentines I received from the boys I had crushes on (especially Christopher R. – the blonde haired, blue eyed man of my dreams in second grade).
In college, I remember getting care packages in the mail from my mother every Valentine’s Day and those little candy hearts never tasted so good! I hope each of you has a fond Valentine’s Day memory or two you can recall this February 14th.
I LOVE … living in Colorado and having my children and grandchild so close by.
I LOVE … having a new job and feeling that I am a valued member of a team.
I LOVE … that the Broncos are going to the Super Bowl.
And I LOVE … the opportunity to serve as President of this fantastic Chapter of EWI!
Will you be my Valentine?

Cars, Cars, Cars....
At the February Chapter meeting, which was held at Johnny Martin's Car Central, the Colorado Springs EWI Chapter was given a sneak peak into the new "members only" club. Filled with all sorts of interesting cars, the members got to view all the cars, talk of their dream cars, eat, drink and make merry. The food, prepared by Food Designers, was yummy and the bartenders took great care of us. Next month, our meeting will be held at Seeds Community Cafe. Be sure to RSVP today.
