LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
We are embarking on another year of fun, fellowship and philanthropy. There are many exciting events already planned for this year. My wish is that you will be able to attend and participate in all of them. This club is rich in history and tradition. May we continue those in the fashion our leaders have done before us.
Our Welcoming Coffee is on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at the Lexington Theological Seminary at Lexington Green. Hopefully, we will welcome many new members! Our interest groups will all be there to sign up ladies with interest in those areas. You will surely be able to find a place for yourself there!
Each year, we strive to give deserving non-traditional female students as many scholarships as we can. We must raise money to that end. On Sunday, September 24, 2023, we will host our biggest fund raiser of the year, the UKWC Scholarship Golf Tournament. If you are not a golfer, there are other ways you can participate. We are always looking for volunteer help and donations. I would be remiss if I did not mention that other interest groups have found ways to contribute to raising money for these scholarships too, i.e. Bake Sales, Garden Gurus Plant/Yard Sale, Crafters Sales, and a Mahjong Tournament. We are grateful for every penny!
As your new President, I am delighted to serve. I recently found this quote from Jack Welch, former CEO of GE. He said, ”When you were made a leader, you weren’t given a crown; you were given responsibility to bring out the best in others.” As I strive to lead this year, let it be a year of bringing out the best in others and also a year of kindness to others.
