September brings about many new beginnings for my family: Hannah starts Kindergarten and I start “working for a pay cheque” again for the first time in 7 years. My days as a stay-at-home mom are coming to an end and I am excited about the next chapter in our lives. I will be working as a noon hour supervisor at the girls’ school for the 2009/2010 year and hope to be working full time in some capacity by next September.
As a result my role in the Kelowna Chapter is changing as well. As of August 31st Elaine Lowe will handle Membership. The Chapter is looking for someone to take over the supplies. If you think you can help out please let Irene know as soon as possible. I plan to continue to chair awareness month and other awareness activities and will therefore still be in contact with you with respect to ideas and/or volunteering. I also plan to still help out at the luncheons, BBQ and Christmas lunch.
We have had 15 (WOW) new members join our Chapter since May. A big welcome to: Susan Harrison- Christina Lake Lorna Young, Phyllis Hardstaff, Camille Garland, Margaret Mansell-Vernon Paule Seeger, Carlie Dudych, Joanne Latulippe, Lorna Hudson & Susan Morrison Kelowna: Jennie Johnson of West Kelowna, Ruth Manning, Louise Fenwick-Summerland; Doreen Van Basten-Penticton; Shelley Cover- Oliver
