November 2017 Newsletter
This will be my last note, as my reign and crown are fading. It has been a pleasure and honor serving as your President these last two years. But I could not have done it without the amazing board members.
Kathaleen, Wow she really set the bar high when it comes to providing fantastic programs. I can’t even begin to cover all the hosting, events, sponsorships and hours she contributed to VRW.
Eleanor…. Membership Chair Extraordinaire! She took the Village Membership to new heights! Her professionalism, follow up, friendliness, creativity, and cooking are second to none!!!
Mary Grace sure found her passion and led us in Patriotism in so many wonderful ways.
Rajada, while she is small, she cannot be ignored! I could always count on her to step up when there was a need (Parliamentarian, hospitality, newsletter, etc). Not only that, she won the 2017 TFRW award for Most Improved Newsletter! Speaking of Rajada, she will only give me so much room on her newsletter so I cannot go into every member of the board, but THEY WERE ALL THE BEST a President could ask for and I am grateful to them!
VRW won the highest awards NFRW and TFRW had to offer. I was very proud to be able to represent you at the conventions. Our club has a well-known reputation as an active, fun, profitable and supportive organization to the Republican Party here in Houston. I cannot tell you how many times I had elected officials and candidates tell me they were told they need to get our attention. VRW campaign center was the only satellite office that did not cost the party money… in fact, we made them money! Not to mention the thousands we contributed to the campaigns. I could go on and on, but alas, Rajada won’t let me.
So, thanks for the memories and I hope to see each of you at the Christmas Party as we wind down this year and look forward to 2018!
