2017-2018 President

Diana Fairbanks

Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and the tragic earthquake in Mexico City --

In the aftermath of all of these events, our first impulse is how to help.  Very few of us have the skills to assist the recovery on the ground, so logically we look for a charity that we can donate money to.  Our social media outlets raise inevitable questions - does the charity actually get the money to the needy, how much is spent internally and on and on.  Responsibility comes with charitable giving.

As a group, WEC is very proud of its association with PACE and their efforts to change the lives of young women for the better in our area.  I’m told that Ronnie Karlin originated the idea of working together with the PACE Center for Girls and for past 10-12 years we have supported PACE with monetary donations from fundraising.

In November, the Board of Directors is focusing our energies on getting re-acquainted with PACE and seeing how we can move our relationship with this wonderful organization forward into new territory.  Both WEC and PACE have changed and evolved over the years since we first partnered together.  Every member I’ve talked to says this relationship is important to them and our boarder community involvement goals. 

Kathleen Ryan will be forming a committee to work on November events around PACE and the Board welcomes your suggestions, comments and of course, your time as a committee member. 

I look forward to exploring a new chapter with PACE and WEC, our future women executives depend on it.

The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss is a remarkable literary artifact: You can open the book in either direction to decide whether you’ll first read Brendan’s, or Evelyn’s account of the mysterious love affair. Choose a side, read it like a regular novel—and when you get to the end, you’ll find yourself at a whole new beginning.
