  Message from the National President:

Happy New Year!


As we embark on this new year, may we continue to build on the success of the 

past and look for new ideas to mentor our current members. Remember to have fun.


Laughter and smiles go a long way to keep members working for our goals and 

objectives. Happy members are more likely to recruit new members. Share what 

your unit is doing to bring joy to your members.


Mid-Winter is just around the corner. Have you registered, signed up for the banquet, 

and booked your hotel reservation? Departments and Units, please submit an ad 

for the Mid-Winter Program book. All deadlines are February 7, 2020.


The Pre-Conference Board meeting will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday February 27 

in the Greenway room, 4th floor. The agenda for Friday and Saturday is attached 

to this newsletter, subject to change. We have quite a bit of business to cover.

Friday evening will be an opportunity for fun & fellowship. Mobile Paint with 

Heather has been arranged with part of the fee of $30 going to our Memorial Fund. 

The instructor will supply all the items we need to paint a picture.  


If you have items that need to be added to the agenda, please email your requests 

so that they may be included in the final agenda.


Please keep our members and their families in prayer.


Look forward to seeing you at Mid-Winter.  “Safe Travels!”

     Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much! (Helen Keller)


Semper Fidelis,


Evelyn B Joppa
