From the President...
Thank you for this opportunity to serve as the President of the UNL Women’s Club. I am privileged to join the long list of women who’ve presided over the club through good times, and bad. One of the goals for my term as President is to encourage our current membership to become more involved. This could take form through checking out an interest group, attending a board meeting or otherwise sharing your ideas. We are a very sociable group so please explore all the club has to offer.
The board gathered for the first meeting of the 2014-2015 year on May 28 and we are very excited to bring you another fun-filled year of UNL Women’s Club events. Committees will be busy throughout the summer arranging all the necessary details. Watch the website and/or the Fall newsletter, coming out in early August, for event specifics.
The overarching theme for this year is “Celebrating 120 years of Fellowship and Service”. The UNL Women’s Club was formed in November 1894. Since its establishment members of the club have been involved with myriad socials ranging from receptions for University students to interest group gatherings. The Club has also been involved with community and University concerns such as funding programs at the YWCA, volunteering with Meals on Wheels and contributing toward student scholarships. I invite each of you to join me at the upcoming fall events as we look back on our rich past while working to ensure our club has a prosperous future.
Have a wonderful summer.
