Happy Thanksgiving Dear Sisters,
Marc and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours. We are thankful for our family, our friends and for all of the blessings in our lives. I am truly thankful for the warm welcome you all gave my husband Marc at the events of this past DFRW Convention weekend. Being among you really feels like being a part of a large family reunion. I am deeply humbled and thankful for all of the love, support, guidance and mentoring that I received along my journey in my campaign for DFRW President. I am thankful that you trusted me with your votes to become the 2022 / 2023 DFRW President. It has been an incredible ride, and I am thrilled to be your next DFRW President. It will be an honor to take over the reins from Cathy Watts.
Cathy has been a remarkable DFRW President over the past four years, and she and her board have worked wonders with all of the amazing progress to date. Under Cathy’s leadership, the DFRW has been recognized on the National stage and the NFRW. As we build out the committees, I will be looking for your recommendations for the best people for every role. We have a big year coming up and we need each of you to share your talents and help us turn blue seats red. I thank Trish Rodriguez for the grace she demonstrated during her campaign for DFRW President and her efforts did not go unnoticed. Trish has been a great contributor over her many years of community service, and Marc and I wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors.
I ask that you please share all of the photos that you took at the DFRW Convention and the dinner the night before. I am assembling a compilation of the weekend and will have a slideshow / video montage commemorating everyone and their contributions. I want to make sure no one is left out of the story of the event. I am looking for photos of the speakers, awards, tables, gifts, outgoing and incoming boards, group shots, and candid shots.
Please send photos in multiple emails of no more than 6 or 7 attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org and / or please send photos in multiple text messages of no more than 6 or 7 attachments to 302-540-8157. I will make copies of the total group of photos and the montage to the DFRW website for everyone who would like a copy.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah to those of you who celebrate the Festival of Lights as we do.
