Greetings From the President
Annual Golf Tournament
What an exciting time of year. Here in the EWI Springs Chapter we are finishing up the final touches on our 2015 Scholastic Golf Tournament. This is our big fundraiser for the year and the proceeds go towards scholarships for non-traditional students needing help to go back to school right here in El Paso County. The Tournament is being held at Kissing Camel’s Golf Course on May 29, with registration starting at 7am and a shotgun start at 8am. Following the tournament will be a luncheon and silent auction for all the golfers and Colorado Springs EWI Members and their guests. If you are not golfing but would like to attend the luncheon, please register for the luncheon as soon as possible so that we can let the caterer know how many meals will be needed.
Golfers, Sponsors, Donations Needed
We are still looking for golfers, sponsors, and donations for our silent auction as well. If you are interested in being a sponsor or donating a silent auction item, contact Michelle Bennett. If you would like to golf, please sign up on our golf tournament registration page.
Simultaneous to our golf tournament activities, Kathleen Kelly is getting some ladies together to plant our community garden spot downtown, across from Corpus Christi Church on Cascade. We are all anxious to see how it turns out this year. Last year’s garden was quite beautiful. If you are interested in helping to plant flowers, be down at the garden on Sunday, May 17th at 10am.
2015-2016 Board of Directors Opportunities
As this year is just flying by it is that time again where we are looking for volunteers to serve on next year’s Board of Directors. If you have a desire to serve, contact Cathy John to learn more about the positions that need to be filled.
On that note, 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,
