President’s Message

 September 2017

Sixteen years ago, I was thoroughly enjoying a spectacular September morning in Wildwood Crest, the golden sun punching a bright hole in the cloudless blue sky.  With my toes in the white sand, I watched my two toddlers splash along the fringes of the turquoise surf.  The calming sounds of sea gulls and ocean waves were suddenly interrupted by a conversation I overheard behind me and in one powerful moment, the unthinkable darkened the day.  Terror on American soil.  The “bad guys” were here, trying to destroy our peaceful way of life and bring us to our knees.  In the days that followed, red-white-and-blue patriotism blanketed our communities and the true colors of our people came shining through in unity and support.

We must mark another anniversary of that horrific event.  That’s the bad news.  The good news is that September reunites our club and brings us back into action.  I am excited for the upcoming projects and activities, spearheaded by amazing women with colorful personalities who spread joy and brighten the lives of those around us.  

Just as the rainbow always follows the storm, kindness always outshines evil. Shine on ladies!

Life is a gift.  Never take it for granted.
