President’s Message - June 2009

This month’s speaker, Northern Division President Liz Froelich, will be a most welcome guide and support to our club’s goals to become the ardent activists who make a difference. That is no easy course to chart by the time we meet our obligations to our families, jobs, communities and to ourselves.

We are all well acquainted with the adage that bad things happen because good men do nothing. Maybe we need to adopt a mantra that, “We will strive to be the good women who do something to change what we can.” If we don’t bird dog proposed legislation, advocate to the best of our principles, and work to elect those we believe will bring our conservative purposes to their office, who will?

It was wonderful at our last meeting to see the great show of hands when the question was asked, “How many picked up the phone, sent an email or a fax, signed a petition, sent a donation, or wrote a letter to the editor?” Hurrah for every one of you! You spoke up and stood up to be counted. And that, ladies, is the heart and soul of democracy. I am proud of you.

We hope you will be at the June meeting to hear Liz Froelich’s information on campaigns. WHEN WOMEN WORK, WE WIN! BY COLLEEN HEDRICK

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.

2) They buy NEW American cars: Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
