Golfers = 52 (To include some real life fire fighters)
Teebag Goodies for our golfers from 16 Companies/Individuals
People having lunch = 70 (To include a few of our scholarship winners in person)
Silent Auction = 27 items including Overnight stays, Golf and many others
Door Prizes = 18 items including Gift Cards, Wine, and many others.
This is going to be such a great event. Thank you all for your hard work.
Our Community Garden has been planted and looks beautiful. Thanks to Kathleen Kelly and everyone who helped her to get that done. What a great way to support our downtown.
2015-2016 Board of Directors Opportunities
Are you ready to participate on the EWI Board of Directors? We are looking for volunteers to serve on next year’s Board. If you have a desire to serve, contact Cathy John to learn more about the positions that need to be filled.
The date has been set for the 2015 EWI Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting (LCAM). This year’s event will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma. LCAM is a great event where you can take leadership classes as well as other education topics. It is also a great way to meet other EWI Members from across the country. If you are interested, you can learn more at the corporate EWI website: 2015 LCAM Event page. And, you can also talk to Cathy John or myself about applying for a scholarship to attend. Each year the Chapter pays for one person, in addition to the board, to go all expenses paid. You could be the lucky winner but you've got to be in it to win it.
With much Gratitude,
