June 2019


Thank you all for your support and trust in me to lead Centralia Business and Professional Women. My theme for this year is "We Rise By Lifting Others."

Our club is full of women who have lifted others. BPW has helped women who suffer domestic abuse and violence. We have raised thousands of dollars with the help of this community to fund scholarships for area students. My goal is to continue on this path and to extend our reach further into our community.

Learning from fellow club members has been one of the highlights of my life; this year I want to encourage all members to get to know one another’s strengths and assets through mentoring relationships. My goal is to set members up with a concentrated team of women to turn to when the need advice.

I want to encourage all members to continue investing their time into BPW. Members of BPW; whether past, present, seasoned, or newer have all done the work to encourage younger generations to step up and take responsibility and I look forward to leading BPW as president this year as we we rise by lifting others.

BPW Remembers Polly Hicks; who recently passed away. This June would have been Polly's 44th anniversary as a member of Centralia "B & P W." She joined the Centralia local in 1975.
How Old Are YOU?

In case you didn't know...state passed a bylaw at the convention that members over the age of 80 no longer need to pay state dues (plus have been a member for 5 years min).

This means the state would like the locals to keep track of birth years now...which we don't have for 95% of the club.

So let's do a drawing. All birth years commented, messaged or emailed to me, will be entered in a drawing for a prize! If there are multiple people in the winning birth year, there will multiple winners!

Thanks all!
