Carol Waters, GFWC-NH President 2012-2014 -summary of acceptance speech May 2012

 

Helen Keller once said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.” That could be the spirit of GFWC. 

 

This president chose Many Hands, One Heart, GFWC ,as her theme. 

 

We, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, are made up of many different women and have a variety of goals for our individual communities but we have a common heart, our membership with GFWC

 

I have chosen Women's Health Awareness as my President's Project. So anything that has to do with women's health, and children's health (because happy , healthy babies=Happy mommas and grandmas).

Some of the Women's Health projects are in the Homelife Program like: Osteoporosis Awareness, American Heart Assoc; Red Dress Project, Uterine Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness, Vaccine awareness for adult women and more. But there are also some in International Partnerships, i.e. the new partner shot@life a United Nations Program  and  IMED. 

Our chairman  will literally gather the information from the other programs and service areas. This project will be a win for NH women with all this increased awareness of healthy living.

 

Membership  is always an area of emphasis in NH. We have Deb Provencher of Pembroke as membership chairman and  Nancy Greenberg, our immediate Past President and  Denise Raisnanen  the Immediate Past Junior Director serving as her committee members.  I’d like to see the Membership chair man from each District be involved with the core membership committee. 

 

I’m hoping that GFWC-NH clubs will see the many benefits of belonging to GFWC and  work to promote membership advancement in their club. 

 

This president is planning meetings, hope to visit clubs, attending anniversary celebrations, answering questions and is so glad for email!

Can you imagine doing all this by  typewriter, letters or telephone? 

 

One of the  major activities  we are planning is to host the NERC in 2013. This is an opportunity to showcase our beautiful state and it’s GFWC members. The meeting will be at the Ashworth By The Sea in Hampston Beach NH. This president hopes we can build GFWC energy and pride and extend that to those attending from the other New England States. 

 

Thank-you
