August 2020


Welcome to BPW 2020-2021

 "Growing Together"

I would like to share my instillation speech to sum up my thoughts, feelings and hopes for the coming year...

If I've learned anything during the last several months, it's perspective.  We all have a tendency to say, "I can't live without...." .  Turns out I use to put great value on things that given the current circumstances really don't seem that important to me anymore.  The once constant, the one thing that kept me going, were my family and friends.  That includes my BPW family.
My chosen theme for the year, Growing Together, has a deeper meaning that just a clever flower metaphor.
I want to use this next year to build upon the relationships of our current membership.  We are a smaller group moving forward, but that does not make us any less effective.  I think this is an opportunity to appreciate what we do have, an amazing group of women who return year after year to accomplish great things.  
The coming year may present itself with some unique challenges, but I know that anything is possible when we all work together and grow together.

I hope to see you all at our first meeting and social event hosted by President Elect, Carrie Perkins-Schnicker.  Thank you to Crooked Creek Winery Downtown for the use of their outdoor space.  Please visit the Facebook page for more info and to RSVP.
