October 1, 2021

As I reflect over the past year, I was hopeful that our country and local community would rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic.  During, the winter months when vaccinations became available to those who chose to be vaccinated, I was encouraged by how our country and community were rebounding from the pandemic. Little did we know that this summer would be an increase in cases and the Delta variant within our community. Once, again, I had to address how the woman’s club would adjust to this situation  in Flagler County. 

At this time, the board has met and discussed the possibility of holding in-person meetings each month as well as changing the dates of fund-raising events.  At this time, the board has decided to hold ZOOM meetings for the board and general meetings.  Each month the board will address the current situation in Flagler County and in  Grand Haven and make a decision regarding participation in meetings as well as events.    Information regarding meetings and events will be posted on our website and through an eblast. The board agreed to continue to agree to  adhere to all state and local guidelines in regards to participating in meetings and other activities. 

During, the past year the Annual Gift Campaign was able to raise over $12,000 from our members. This money was able to provide much needed support to our local agencies in Flagler County. The Grand Haven Woman’s Club Annual Gift Campaign will be your opportunity to continue to support organizations by donating money and joining the Circle of Philanthropy.  Many of the organizations are facing numerous financial challenges from the impact of this pandemic. With the uncertainty of monies raised through fund- raising events the budget committee has taken a very conservative approach to allocations for this up-coming year. The Annual Gift Campaign may be the only opportunity for all of us to continue to provide assistance to much needed organizations through our giving.  

I encourage you to join fellow members in supporting this effort and joining our Circle of Philanthropy with your tax-deductible contribution made payable to GHWC.  You can send your check in the enclosed envelope to:  Kim Lhota, President, 18 Grandview Dr., Palm Coast, FL  32137.  I look forward to a time when we can come together as a club and celebrate our many accomplishments. I hope you and your family members stay safe and well during this unsettled time.

Sincerely,

Kim Lhota

President, GHWC
