Celebrating Our Strategic Partners

July 2, 2018

Hello Friends,

Someone once said that June was the "gateway to summer".  We sure saw all the signs of activity and heard the sighs of repose.  June can be the month that starts the "reboot" of our lives.

June also ends the busy 2nd quarter of our Women's Council Network.  Speaker Janet Redman alerted us to the Financial Challenges for Women, a very informative program.  We then offered 4 CE classes the first ful day session was free to members and the second full day session was $25.00 for members.  Strategic Partners provided breakfast, lunch and happy hours.  Our intention is to continue in this vein, hoping to gather more of our members to attend our meetings.  We are again so grateful to all our Strategic Partners, please utilize their services.

OUr 9th annual fundraiser, Mardi Bras, was a huge success and so much fun.  Join us when we present our Murder Mystery on the 14th of October.  The date was changed from the 21st because of the many scheduled programs in our communities that need our attendance.

We had a very successful program on the 19th of July.  Drew Boyce from DELDOT gave us insight in all the planning that is occurring of the transportation/navigation through Sussex County.  We are all hoping that our roads carry us safely to and from the Beaches.

AVID is a non-profit organization that closes the gap in COllege graduation rates among diverse groups.  Teachers are specially trained to inspire students but many times have to pay out of their own pockets for school supplies.  Please help by donating; staplers, pens/pencils, notebook paper, tape dispensers, markers, scissors, thumb drives, etc.  THis fund raiser ends 8/10/2018, contact Kathleen Irwin 302-841-1704 for more information.  Thank you.

WCR needs your profiles, please go to to submit or update your profile.  If you do not receive our e-mails, let me know or Sue Sisson and we will correct that.

BREATHE!  PLAY!   Have a wonderful summer.
