Breaking Free Collections Update

 Last month I began collecting hygiene products for Breaking Free and already have quite the pile of stuff. A reminder I am collecting pads and tampons, toothpaste and tooth brushes, soap or body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, and African American hair care products and these items do not have to be full size they can be sample or travel size items. You can bring these items to the general meetings or to my house. Lets keep up the fantastic work. thanks, Teddy

Our Annual Holiday Cookie Exchange

Each person brought 72 cookies (of one type) and went home with ½ dozen each of 12 different kinds. There will be drinks, appetizers, and holiday fun.Wear a Santa hat or your favorite holiday sweater. We will have Holiday treats to share afterwards.

Planning for the 2016-2017 year!

It’s that time of year when we start to fill our board and LPM positions. We will need someone to step up to be our next president. If this is something you have thought about please talk to me ASAP. Do not wait to see if someone else will step up I will start to formally ask for a president in December and the board in January. As president you do not need to do everything, just do the best you can. This position is open to all members who have served on the board at least one year. It is open to new members who would like to try something different, members of many years who are finding a little open space in their calendar, members who are ready to take their turn as president, and members who have been president before and would like to do it again. Everyone should be president at least once. It is a great opportunity to get to know all of the other members of the chapter in a new way. You do not need to have all the answers or even a lot of extra time. Not all presidents make it to every board and/or general meeting. Sometimes life gets crazy and they miss one (or two). Not all presidents can make it to all of the state conventions. If you miss one, we will just send someone to represent you. If you care about the community and the members of NHWT, you have what it takes to be a great president. It is not as scary as it looks from the outside. My year as president was a lot of fun. The support I received from the past presidents and other members was amazing. I enjoyed the opportunities given to me. With six children at home, I did not have a lot of time to go to all of the events or do as much as I would have liked. I still had the greatest time doing what I could when I could. Never once did a member make me feel bad I couldn’t do more. It’s not about doing everything. It’s about taking your turn to support our community and chapter. So, put your 2016-2017 planning hats on and chose what position you would like to help with next year. -Anna
