First, I want to thank the membership for allowing me to serve as President; it is truly an honor. Les Femmes du Monde is now 58 years strong and I would like to welcome to all our returning and new members. Our fundraising for the World Affairs Council has provided over two million dollars of support and over $750,000 for the Child Life Program at Children’s Health.
The board has planned an exciting year of activities that will be fun and educational for all. The motto of Les Femmes du Monde is “Women Helping Youth in Health and Education.” This year we will get to meet several of the youth that we have helped and learn how truly important our impact is. We will have our new member tea at the home of Lisa Cooley and travel to far away times and places via our summer program series. To end our year, our Christmas Party will be hosted by Margaret Hunt.
Our Woman of the Year announcement party will let everyone know who has accepted our invitation; look for the invitation in March. This will be an exciting time for our organization as our honoree is a very well known advocate for volunteerism in Texas.
Please visit LesFemmesduMonde.org to learn more about our events and programs.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help with our programs this year and if you would like to volunteer, please let me know where your interests lie. This is the easiest way to meet new members and catch up with old friends. My email is MarthaCCox@yahoo.com, feel free to contact me if you would like to volunteer or have questions.
