2020 has most definitely been a challenging year, but many times I look back on the year 2008. 2008 was a definite turning point in my life – in August, my mother died on her 80th birthday after battling Alzheimer’s, and then in October, I lost my job of 30 years. I had joined the Matthews Woman’s Club Service League in September of that year at the recommendation of a friend but had only attended a couple of meetings and was not quite sure what this organization was about. At an orientation for new members, I listened as various members spoke and the passion for their contributions in the community totally reeled me in. Over the years I have watched and worked beside these women and the love of their community, the offering of a helping hand, and the support of their fellow sisters is beyond amazing. I am so very proud to represent them as their President.
Please join us at our next meeting and see the many ways we can work together to make a difference in our community.
