From the President’s Pen – February 2017

It has been said that November and January are the longest, darkest and loneliest months of the year for many who face mental health issues. The commercials for Bell Let’s Talk on the TV bring a ray of hope to those who are suffering. Reach out to family and friends every single day – they may need an encouraging word and your voice could be the ray of sunshine for the day.

President Linda Hoy holding a sign that reads "#We are WI"We have just had our Executive Officers participating in the second Skype call on Saturday, January 21st for 4 1/2 hours. They have come out of their comfort zone to hook up to modern technology and I think you are awesome!

Discussion included finances, moving forward with the Board Restructuring Ad Hoc Committee, IPG Scholarship, FWIC 100th Anniversary, WI Logo, rebranding and launches. As you can see, we have lots of exciting things being worked on. Our next Skype call will be March 4th.

President Linda Hoy holding a sign that reads "February WI Month"I declare February as WI Month. How will your branch celebrate February 19th, Founder’s Day or Adelaide’s Birthday on February 27th? Send us your photos and we will display them on our website and Facebook pages. Tie blue & gold ribbons to your mailbox or vehicle antenna for the month of February.

Linda Hoy
FWIC President
