Thoughts from President
"I can do everything through him who gives me strength."
In 1992 Joan McHugh (who was the Suffolk Zone President) invited me to the AD LWML Convention held at the Desmond Hotel in Albany, NY. At the time I had no idea how accepting that invitation would impact my life. I met many of the women I still see at events today. I came home from Albany so excited that I told my husband we were going to the next International LWML Convention wherever it was going to be held. Little did I know that we would be heading to Edmonton, Canada in 1993. I became involved in the AD LWML a few years later.
I've held the following positions on the AD LWML BOD: President, Vice President for Mission Outreach, Acting Treasurer, and Secretary. I am presently the Archivist-Historian and Structure Chairman. In 2003 I was asked to serve on the LWML Structure Committee. The bylaws of all 40 districts were reviewed before district conventions convened. I was the Host Committee Chairman for the 2013 LWML Convention held in Pittsburgh, PA. What an experience that was! I have been the Assistant to the Convention Manager since 2014. It is so interesting to see how each convention is unique to where it is being held. I've worked with many LWML sisters on these conventions.
My "go to" Bible verse is from Philippian 4:13, "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." I know He is always with me and helps me get through many challenges. Thanks be to God for all His many blessings!
