SEPTEMBER 2014 - Lend A Hand, Wear A Smile!

September 17, 2014 10:55 AM | Linda Wilson (Administrator)

It was fantastic to see so many of our members at the September Luncheon. I hope everyone enjoyed our speaker, Victoria Kastner, who is an encyclopedia of knowledge concerning all things Julia Morgan and Hearst Castle. It was delightful and inspirational for me. 

Now, as I seek to inspire the rest of you, I am at a loss for words. That is a first, believe me! However, I recently came across some words of wisdom, from our past President Martha Schwartz, that I thought I might pass on to you. 

“One of life’s lessons I have learned is that participation is the key to the success of any organization. Our Monday Club has a long history of member participation. I want to perpetuate and enhance that tradition. There will be opportunities for every member to participate at some level in the activities of our Club; there are large scale jobs and there are small scale jobs, but all jobs are Big Jobs that are important in making our Club function.  So, please let me hear each and every one of you will step forth and lend a hand.”

“Our Club goal – ‘to promote civic, social and cultural welfare’ is both serious and worthwhile, but there is no reason why we shouldn’t have a lot of fun while fulfilling that goal – I know I intend to.”

Martha’s words of encouragement are as alive today as they were when she penned them. I look to each member to lend a helping hand, wear a big smile, and have a lot of fun this year!
