Sorry for waiting so long to send my message to you, but sometimes there is only so much time in one day and, I know, you all very well understand.
My May Message is first of all addressed to all of you to thank you for your support and cooperation. We have had a lot of fun together in the last few months with our events, last of which the Wine and Ale tasting to raise funds for the Grant.
We were able to raise close to $800.00 after all the payments were made. So we will be able to give $1,000.00 Marketing Grant as hoped, plus the 2 Memberships to Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce, 2 to JEDI and 2 to WIBN. The application form is on the WIBN website and the deadline to turn in your applications is May 25th. Good Luck to all of you who will be participating!
I am happy to share that Heather Weldon has accepted the position of Vice President and that Debbie Lewis and Sherry Anderson have applied for the position of Directors at large. They were voted in at our last board meeting and we gladly welcome them and thank them for sharing their time and knowledge for the next two years.
I also wish to thank Lisa Nixon, Joan Smith-Freeman, Monique Dixon and Shannon Salvestro for their great job as board of the Yreka chapter. The membership is slowly increasing, the meetings have interesting guest speakers and the spirit is high. They are organizing a fundraiser to bring up their portion of funds. It will be a Wine and Ale tasting at St. Mark’s in Yreka on June 15th from 4-7pm. More information will be posted soon.
Our guest speaker in July will help us optimize our internet traffic and we are also planning a High Tea with a Fashion Show right after the middle of August, so get involved and join the fun.
Call me if you can help with positions like Membership Chair, News and Media, Fundraising, Marketing or just to bring forth ideas to continuously improve the quality of our organization.
I look forward to seeing all of you on Wednesday June 5th to celebrate the winners of the Grant! Bring a friend or a business woman who can benefit from WIBN.
Be Happy and Smile!
