End of Our Club Year

April 25, 2019 9:09 AM | Jennifer Alderman (Administrator)

Beloved Members,


As May brings our club year to a close, it is also time for a change in leadership. It has truly been an honor to be President of such a special and historic club for the past two years. The collaborative, innovative, and smart women who have dedicated their time and energy to make our programs, meetings and fundraisers their absolute best, have been a constant inspiration to me. We would not exist today without your strong commitment to the values and principles upon which The Monday Club was founded. 


It feels like the perfect time to reflect on all that our small but mighty Monday Club accomplished this past year. The membership should be terrifically proud of their fundraising efforts on behalf of The Monday Club (TMC) and The Monday Clubhouse Conservancy (TMCC). Those efforts raised funds for TMCC Fine Arts Awards and Raising A Reader programs, and provided donations of cash and needed supplies to Stand Strong. Our December Holiday Boutique was the most successful to date and helped to support TMC materially and provided Stand Strong with a trove of holiday gifts for mothers and their children. 


We broke ground on our long-awaited and planned for construction project in January and are on schedule for completion by June 30. While the annual Sip and Sample events have supported this effort, what has been TREMENDOUS is the support that the membership has shown towards this important and long-overdue project. Your generosity and caring have shown San Luis Obispo our strength and the intent of The Monday Club and The Monday Clubhouse Conservancy, and have set an example for the community to follow. 


In closing, I want to thank each of you for your friendship and commitment. I look forward to the 2019-2020 club year and working together, but this time, in a non-board member capacity.


With gratitude,


Jennifer
