President’s Message
 
April 2024
 
Happy April!
 

As the full-timers know, it’s about that time for the snowbirds to fly north and the hot humid weather to set in. Originally from Ohio, people always ask me “how do you put up with the heat?” My response is simple - you don’t go out in the winter up north and we don’t go out in the summer here! Before summer sets in, check out the Bonita Downtown Landmarks Walking Tour happening April 5th. As always, our Events Chairwomen, Barbara and Jane have put together an informative and fun tour!
 
As members of the Estero Newcomers Club, I don’t have to tell you about all the fun things there are to do every month! So much going on and so many sold out events! Please check the website regularly so you don’t miss out!  I am particularly excited about the volunteer opportunities that our Charity Chairwoman, Rose has added. Those of you who know me know I believe we should be giving back and to see these events sold out makes me a happy woman! We are also excited to be supporting The Pace Center for Girls as our second quarter charity - a charity near and dear to my heart!
 
At the April luncheon and business meeting, we look forward to having someone from Pace come and talk about all the great things they are doing to support young women in our community. Please join us at The Estero Country Club on April 18, 2024 to catch up on all that’s happening with our club. We are pleased to have Carrie Bloemers from Lee Health’s Healthy Life Center on hand to share how they can help us all live our best lives! Our raffle basket this month is a special wellness basket so don’t miss the opportunity to take that home and support Pace!
  
Thanks to all of you who make our club so successful! A special thanks to our Board and Coordinators - we appreciate you! Remember, take time to breathe. Be kind - to yourself and others. We are a group of strong, smart women - we all matter!
