I am truly honored to serve as your 2014-2016 District 7 President. I am so excited and humbled to have this incredible opportunity. I believe that our District 7 Ladies are the best in NC (I know, I may be a little biased- but that’s OK!) We have some great things planned for this administration and I hope that you will plan to be a part of them. We have three goals set forth for our District and they are as follows:
A passion that I hold near and dear to my heart is Veterans-supporting those who have so freely given of themselves so that each of us may enjoy the daily freedoms that sometimes we may take for granted. Our 2014-2016 District 7 Theme is: A Brighter Tomorrow for Our Veterans. And very appropriately- our District color for this administration is-ROYAL BLUE! You will see lots of blue and lots of ways for us to support veterans throughout the next two years.
2.Our second goal as a District will of course be to support our State President/JD’s Special Project- Unlocking a Brighter Tomorrow (Partnering with Communities in Schools of North Carolina) http://www.cisnc.org/
3. And, our third goal for this administration will be to focus on Membership and Leadership. At each of our District meetings, we will pay special tribute to each of these areas, as they are the fundamentals that will help us grow and develop our members, our volunteers- the true heart and soul of our Federation.
I look forward to traveling to each of your clubs and meeting with all of you. I love seeing our Volunteers in Action and am eager to see how each of you are Living the Volunteer Spirit!
In Federation Spirit,
