President's Message December 2018
It’s the holiday season and I wish everyone a joyous celebration of Christmas and Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve! As we approach the end of 2018, I can say it has been my honor and pleasure to serve as your President for the past two years.
At the December 12th General Holiday Meeting I will be passing the gavel to Jacqueline Cooper, as she is installed as your new President for the year 2019.
I believe that Jackie’s enthusiasm and leadership will add great new things to SCARWF in the coming year!
2018 has been a tumultuous year for the Republican Party and a busy one for SCARWF, full of many activities and success in fun and fund raiser with our Fashion Show, Wine Tasting Cruise and Special Guest Speakers. It has been a year packed with campaigning and getting out the vote. Though we haven’t had the result at the recent Midterm elections that we all worked hard for, we will move forward knowing that our club members were out there making a difference in Orange County all year long!
Now let’s all continue to be active members of SCARWF with efforts to educate and inform our citizenry. Let’s continue and even step up the important work of registering voters, supporting our military outreach and raising funds for our Scholarship program. I feel great about the ever-growing size of our membership now at 194 and closing in on 200 strong! Let’s keep up the good work ladies & gentlemen and grow our membership in the year 2019!
A new SCARWF Board is forming for 2019 and that means opportunities for new members to become involved, take a Standing Committee Chair position, work on a sub-committee for Ways & Means to plan the next Fashion Show or Wine Cruise. Please make a New Year’s resolution to try something new in SCARWF and join our Book Club or help us work with the OCGOP to get ready for the 2020 Election!
I want to thank the 2017-2018 Board members who served our club and were by my side pitching in with their time and talents! It was fun ladies, as we improved and modernized our club website, directory and communications network and continued having our Tide Newsletter as a Diamond Award winner. I am very happy to be part of this active, dynamic group and see a bright future ahead for SCARWF!
Happy Holiday greetings,
Mollie Lazarus, President
