April 2021


Welcome to BPW 2020-2021

 "Growing Together"

March has come and gone and the marvelous spring bulbs and flowering trees usher us into April.  I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend.  We could not ask for more amazing weather on Easter Sunday.  

This April we will be busy preparing for Carrie Perkin-Schnicker to take the reigns and lead us through the rest of 2021 and into 2022.  We will hold officer elections at the general meeting and are planning behind the scenes for Instillation in May.  
Please remember to complete your survey for Carrie.  It only takes a few minutes.  Anyone not at the March meeting was mailed a copy of the survey. If you did not receive one, please contact me.  We may not have a current address.  Survey's can me returned at the April meeting or mailed/emailed directly to Carrie.

We have a date for Workshop #2--" Painting with Carrie Leigh"
Mark your calendar for Thursday, April 29th for a fun night of sociallizing and creativity.  Instead of rushing to plan one more workshop by May, when so many other events are happening, we will plan for June.  So stay tuned.

I hope to see everyone at the April meeting.  Along with the birthday basket, we have a special surprise for everyone from some bunny special!

The menu choices are posted below and I ask that you RSVP by Noon on Monday, April 12th.  

As always, wishing everyone the best,  

Tammy L Resch, President

SAFE Donations
Thank you so much for everyone's donations.  Along with the items collected at the General Meeting, over $200 was collected!
The ladies at SAFE were beyond excited, as their donation shelves were almost empty when I arrived. 
Thank you to all for your generousity!

Legislation News
Hello Ladies!  Just a reminder that there is an election this month on April 6th.  This is a municipal election and is just as important, or maybe more important, since we will be electing those who will be making decisions for our community.  So, grab a friend and vote.  Remember, we didn't always have the right to vote.  And, have a Happy Easter!

Education News
It's time again for surveys.  I'm looking forward to getting the surveys and making sure our members are able to serve in the committees of their choice.  And, to get your feedback.  You can send yours in by mail, digitally, or bring it to the April meeting.  For this month instead of our scheduled program, we will be doing a fun "getting to know you" game that we didn't get to do in February.  Hope to see you there!
