Great End to the Club Year
The annual End of Year Luncheon in the "Petite Tente" at L'Auberge Chez Francois was a great end to an unusual year. For the first time this club year, the all-outside event was mask free and enabled full social interaction. Past President Erin Lobato was recognized for her year and a half of work as President and years at other board positions. Board members Missy Perkins, Beth Colligan, Amy Paladini, Karyn Ryan and Kim Finch were thanked for their service. Marketing VP Meralee Fredenburgh described the name change process and with a crescendo unveiled the logo to the capacity crowd of members. The next all-club meeting will be the Kick-Off Luncheon in September.
Bluebells & Eagles Walk for Friends of Riverbend Park (FORB)
Members of the Philanthropy group met with Hugh Morrow (FORB President) to present him with the $3,000 check from the “Virginia Bluebells and Eagles” fundraising event. He expressed great appreciation to all of the GFFN members that supported FORB. Any funds that Hugh receives from GFFN is used to educate today’s youth on environmental stewardship and support scholarships to students from Title 1 schools.
The Philanthropy group is grateful that another one of its charities (FORB) received front-page coverage in the Great Falls Connection. In fact, we are thrilled that 100% of our charity events and check donations received front-page coverage, which gives greater visibility to these worthy charities and highlights some of the activities of our wonderful women’s club.
GFFN supports the GFFN Scholarship Fund's Annual Tea.
On Sunday April 25th we gathered for our 2nd Annual Scholarship Fund Spring Tea at River Bend Country Club AND virtually from around the country!
We remembered and celebrated the life of Holly Kuga with beautiful remarks from daughter Katie Kuga Wenner. There was not a dry eye in the room. Holly's husband Bob was surrounded by old friends, new friends, and tremendous love and support. He also won the Tony Romo autographed Cowboys football which he had really wanted!! It was the perfect way to end the event.
