Dear Members of GFWC FL Southside Woman’s Club of Jacksonville, Inc.,
We will officially begin a new club year with our opening reception on September 10, and with our first meeting of the year in October. I am excited to be leading the club once again. We have an experienced Board who are enthusiastically preparing for the events and projects planned and willing to entertain any ideas you have to make this year our best ever!
One of the things on which we must focus our
efforts is building our membership. Everything we do is easier the more folks we can get to help, and that help needs to come from new members who can carry on the work we have done for over a century. So, put on your thinking caps, look around your neighborhood and other clubs to which you may belong, your place of worship, friends you may have not seen in awhile, and invite these women to visit a club meeting. Tell them about things we have done and plan to do. Get them interested in helping with something you are doing with the club. If they are artsy, tell them about our great participation in the arts and crafts festival and invite them to join us and participate, too. They don’t have to be your age, they can be younger or older, as long as we can foster the enthusiasm we need to grow and keep up the good works we do.
We have a number of interesting speakers for our meetings, speakers from our community who are experienced in their areas of expertise and willing to explain what they do and how we can help them reach their goals. After the time we have had away from club work this summer, let’s renew our efforts, dedicate ourselves to making a difference, and be open to new projects and new ideas.
Again, WELCOME to the 2020-21 Club Year. Let’s make it the best year we can through unity, and challenge each other to put our hearts into all that we do, making SWCJAX the best it can possibly be!
With Federation Love,
Julie Babcock, President
