President’s Message
December 2023
Hello to the Ladies of the ENC!
As you know, I have been entrusted to lead the ENC forward for the remainder of the year and throughout 2024. I have big shoes to fill and am honored to take the reins of such an awesome organization! I will be depending on all of you for guidance and support! I cannot thank Judy enough for all her kindness, love and leadership! She will be missed!
As the holidays are upon us, I am thankful for all the kindness and support I have received from so many of you! YOU are the reason this Club is such a success!
There are so many exciting upcoming regular and special events and I encourage all of you to visit the Calendar and Registration Page of the website often to check out what’s coming! 
I am particularly excited about the upcoming Holiday Gala - a “can’t miss” event! Registration is open so don’t delay in registering. Also coming in December is the Holiday Gift Exchange - an ENC favorite! Keep your eyes open for registration information coming soon! The December luncheon will be another exciting opportunity to participate in the Holiday Basket Raffle to benefit the Children’s Network of Southwest Florida so keep your eyes open for registration of that event. We have the Sisters of Song ready to entertain us for this special holiday luncheon!
I am grateful for all of the women we have been coordinating the monthly activities and special activities! If you have not attended an event in a while - you are missing out!
As we look forward to 2024, take time to breathe. Be kind - to yourself and others. We are a group of strong, smart women - we all matter!
Happy Holidays
