I am happy to report that BPWEV is taking all the necessary steps to ensure we continue to grow and prosper.
Our last dinner meeting was a fine example of getting the “word out” as we had the largest crowd in many months. The two scholarship recipients who attended were pleased to receive a free year membership to our LO. The nine guests who attended enjoyed interacting with our members and we hope they join our organization in the future.
Plantation accommodated our request for larger tables in order to meet social distancing guidelines. Our current meeting room accommodates up to 25 attendees at the present time. Once we go over 25, we will be moved to a larger room.
Our organization has grown by over twenty five percent in two short months. I always said, “our organization is the best kept secret in Englewood and Venice” and now is the time to get the word out. If more women and men knew what our mission is and what we do, they would join our organization. We have an extraordinary group of women who are positive and support each other. Our group is compassionate, charitable and determined, also know how to have fun.
The annual wine tasting event to benefit the Adult Learner Scholarship program and BPWEV will take place on Friday, October 16. This year, the event will be held at Rumours, in Englewood, located in Lemon Bay Plaza. All members and friends of BPWEV are invited to attend and support this fun event.
Thus far, this year has been challenging and filled with so many uncertainties, and at times frustrating. It has also been a year of opportunities to reconnect with family and friends. We can talk or video chat at slower pace and recognize that, “it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things in life we are at one”. (from the Collect by Mary Stewart)
We have four months until the end of 2020, let us challenge ourselves to grow our LO another twenty five percent!
