May 2021


Welcome to BPW 2020-2021

 "Growing Together"

Hello  and welcome to May, a month of celebrations and new beginning's!  We celebrate another year past in our group of amazing women and usher in a new year of Centralia BPW.

It has come time to say goodbye as your President as we welcome Carrie Perkins-Schnicker into the position this month.  I know she will be amazing and full of heart as she leads us into what I hope will be a year of more opportunities to be together.

It has been my honor to serve as your President this last year.  It may have not been the most ideal year, but it certainly was an interesting one!

It was as year of learning to be creative with what you've been given and making the best out of each situation.  It was truly appreciating one another and being thankful for the time we had together.

We had to end our long standing Salad Luncheon fundraiser, but through team work we were able to come up with the Workshop Fundraisers.  I know we were only able to hold two this year, but I see them as a new way of introducing BPW to the community and offering more chances to meet potential members, all the while helping our current members grow their business.

I wanted this to be a year of "Growing Together, and I truly believe we accomplished that.   We grew together through change and uncertainty and most importantly grew together as BPW Sisters! 

Thank you ladies for the opportunity to lead you, I have learned so much and will forever be grateful for the encouragement and friendship along the way.

Signing off, for the final time, 

Tammy L Resch, President
