Due to the COVID-19 virus, we were unable to have our May General Meeting which included the installation ceremony for the 2020-2021 officers. My acceptance speech was sent by mail to all of the Pine Castle Woman’s Club members. 

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

A Note from Our President

 What an honor it is to serve as President of the Pine Castle Woman’s Club, the heart of the Community, for the next two years.

 Members have been asked to focus on Chandler’s five C’s this year as we move the Club forward which includes: 

 Commitment, Continued Education, Communication, Creativity and Connectivity.


 In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” I’m counting on each of YOU!
