Are you ready to join me at the beautiful Canaan Valley State Park Resort, August 5 –7?
This year’s summer conference will be full of federation learning, federation friendships and federation fun! Remember to pack you past GFWC and GFWC West Virginia administration apparel for the Friday evening HEROES Banquet. And bring your military uniform, Uncle Sam or Rosie the Riveter costume, or red, white and blue for the USO Picnic and Show on Saturday evening. The troops will be entertained by Mr. Lee Dean and some of our talented GFWC WV Clubwomen.
Here is a reminder of the schedule for the weekend:
Registration will be from 2:00-5:30 p.m. on Friday with a general session beginning at 3 p.m. This session will feature information on GFWC contests — photography, writing, Jennie Award and community improvement. Speakers will also give information on Pearl Buck, 1734, WHRC and public policy and legislation.
Friday evening will be a H.E.R.O.E.S banquet at 6 p.m. honoring Federation heroes with presentations on communication, leadership and membership -- areas all members need to be invested in.
Friday at 9:30 p.m. will be a time to be together with your district friends as we have DISTRICT FUN.
Saturday morning from 8:30-9:30 a.m. group meetings for district presidents, state chairmen and club presidents will be held. Then it is back together for CSPs, Advo-cates for Children and Domestic Violence.
Saturday’s luncheon is Lunch and Learn where we will hear about LEADS and schol-arship winners.
Saturday afternoon’s general session will focus on reporting and fundraising.
Bring your patriotism along and enjoy a USO picnic and show at 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening at the picnic shelter in front of the lodge.
See you at Canaan!
In Federation Friendship,
