I feel privileged to have been your president. It has been a gift of learning through and with many talented, wonderful women; a path of self-discovery; a journey of endeavor and accomplishments. It has been an honor to serve this inspiring, generous club.
I know that we will be in sure, caring, capable hands with our President Elect Cathy Brickey and her 2016 – 2017 Board to whom I wish a Great Big Bon Voyage!
In friendship and with sincere thanks,
President 2015 - 2016
