Wow, my first blog ever. I imagine for most of us, this page could be where we do our first blog. I hope that everyone had a great 2012 and that 2013 will be our best year ever at every level, from individual to our world. At the national level, we’ll find our soon if our country is going over the so-called “fiscal cliff”. Let’s hope our lawmakers can do their jobs and represent the common good in coming up with a solution.
At the branch level, here’s to another year of interesting and informative meetings, interest groups that meet the needs of its members and help to maintain membership (and attract new members), community projects that make a difference, and friendships that last. If you’re not as involved with Lakewood AAUW as you’d like, look closely at all the interest groups available and maybe start a new one if your interest isn’t covered. Even more importantly, consider joining the leadership team. We are looking for new officers for 2013-15. Check in with Margaret Greivel, Sherry Hitztaler, or Bev Dare to discuss your potential interest.
HAPPY NEW YEAR,
Mary Wylie, Co-President
