As I'm writing this message, I'm starting to plan for Thanksgiving and the hordes that will descend on my house. But, by the time you read it, we will all be hunkering down for winter. Speaking of winter, there are so many of us who go south for all or part of the cold season, that I think we might be able to start an MWI chapter in Florida. Just a thought!
MWI people are on the move and it's sad to see so many of you leave us. It also causes a serious problem. We are losing many worker bees...the women who always step up and help out.
If MWI is going to remain the vital organization it has been for the last 10 years, we need new people to step up to the plate. We need HELP! We need YOU!
At a Board Meeting (which all of you are welcome to attend) a few months back, Cheryl Ross spoke to the board about giving back. But, that was like singing to the choir. The organization, as of this writing, has 510+ members. The Board is only 50+ women who work so hard to make Meadowbrook Women's Initiative special for all of you. Remember every season...is the season of giving!
Right now, I would like to share Cheryl's story with you:
In the fourth book of the Torah, Moses is leading a large number of people through the desert. He feels that he has too much work to do, and he needs other people to help him. He asks God for help. God tells Moses to gather 70 of the leaders of his people, and bring them to a central place. They will share the work that has to be done. The first few times that Moses asks God for help, Moses does not receive the help. But after asking several times, he gets the help that he wants.
In other words, MWI is asking for volunteers to help with our fund-raising events and study groups. Contact me and let me know how you can HELP!
Although I am not the first, please accept my wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2019!
