When Pat Farkas asked me to be a VP of this year's Executive Board of the Women's Club, I was very happy to accept. I had worked with Pat on the Boutique Auction last year and other events and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her. I was looking forward to a great year. Little did any of us know that Pat's tenure as President would tragically be a short one. I miss Pat as a friend, as a mentor, and as our President. She was an amazing woman, a force of nature, who devoted her life to the service of helping others. We were all blessed to have had her in our lives. Pat is a hard act to follow but I promise you my intention is to be the best President I can be with your prayers, help and support.
Last weekend was one of our biggest fundraisers, the Arts and Crafts Festival, and what an amazing event it was. Even the cool, rainy, windy weather didn't keep people away. Many of the vendors told me they had record sales and that our show is so well run. All of our committees recorded record sales too. 52 Vendors have already registered for next year! Thank you to the Committee Chairs for your planning, organization and dedication to providing the best for our vendors and customers. A big thank you to our crew of volunteers who worked tirelessly the entire week leading up to and including the days of the festival. What a talented, generous club of women we are, who work hard but have fun doing it. I truly enjoyed working with all of you.
