April President's Message

 
Each month the President of Quota sends out a message to the members. Here you will find April 2017's message.
 
Happy Spring! It is finally here! I say this with some confidence because there are daffodils in our year and leaves on our trees.
 
I hope that the recent sunshine has energized you because it is going to be a busy spring for Flint Quotarians. On the 21st, some of us will be heading to Grand Rapids for the Region 4 Conference led by our own Renee Keswick. Our Spring Luncheon/Auction will take place on May 6th. Remember that we need items for the live and silent auctions and plenty of guests to bid. If you have not told Carolyn Stubbs your plans, now is the time.
 
We have decided to try some changes for our club. A committee has been appointed to explore a possible change of venue for the evening meetings. The committee will report to the club in June. A second committee has been appointed to explore options for service projects. We are going to try a new format and swap some Program Meetings for service projects. This has been discussed at recent Business Meetings. There will be an opportunity for members to offer suggestions at the April Program Meeting on April 20th before the committee starts it work. The committee will report to the club in September.
 
The nominating committee will present a slate of officers to the club at the April Program meeting. There will be a Board Meeting on May 20th for lunch ( location to be determined) following the service project at the Flint Food Bank.
 
On a sad note, Quota International of Flint lost a faithful member last month. Mary Hamacher passed away on March 31st at the age of 93. Mary joined Quota International of Flint in 1975. She will be missed. Some of us were able to attend her funeral Mass before our April Business Meeting. Because of Mary's love of reading and her commitment to the welfare of children, the club will make a donation in her memory to the Children's Section of the Flint Public Library. RIP Mary.
 
Once again, I thank you all for your dedication to Quota.
 
Yours in Quota,
Carolyn Boegner
