I would like to thank the family of Marjory White for their gift, as they gave us a very generous Scholarship check last year and will continue the scholarship award in their mother’s memory this year. Marge was a very supportive and active member of our club and always tried to bring a guest to all our meetings. She sponsored more members through her legacy to our club than any other single person in recent years. Marge was the one who sponsored me into the club in the Fall of 2011. She had been talking to me for years, but I was working full-time and could not attend the meetings. As soon as I retired, she said I should come to one meeting with her, and I was hooked.
I know many other members can tell their own stories about Marge. She is so very missed but never forgotten. Her positive attitude towards life was a trait that I always admired. She was one of a kind!
All reservations for our April 23, 2018 Fundraiser at the Present Day Club must be received by April 13, 2018 to save your place at this fun-filled day with Christina’s yummy food, Silent Auction, theme baskets, and door prizes. Please invite and bring your friends and family!
Finally, I want to announce that our Nominating Committee is chaired by the very capable Kathy Hutchins and her committee: Doris Tazelaar and Mary Tamm. Kathy, thank you so very much for taking over this position to fill all our Board positions. If you or anyone you know might be interested in serving on our Board, please let Kathy know ASAP.
It is with a bittersweet heart that I have to announce that my husband, Ted, and I will be moving to Seattle sometime this summer. After 47 years living in the Princeton area, it will be so hard to leave our family and friends to start a new life on the West Coast. Our two sons and daughters-in-law and grandkids have lived on the other side of the country for 16 years, and since we are retired, we want to spend the rest of our lives with them. We will be moving to a 55-and-over community and are looking forward to our next adventure in life.
My friendships and membership in WCCP have been one of the highlights of my life, and I have been privileged to serve as your President this year. Thank you, one and all, for the support you have given me in this endeavor. My Board is #1 in my eyes.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to All… Florence Begun

The State of New Jersey Politics and Policy:
Do a New Governor and An Energized Electorate make a difference?

Topics addressed are budget, education. energy and environment, along with other stateside concerns. She also serves on the board of New Jersey Future, of which she is a founder, and on the NJ AARP Policy Advocacy Committee.
With a new Governor in the Statehouse, what better time to think and talk about these critical issues. Come bring your guests and join in an afternoon of lively discussion.

At the last meeting at Kathy Hutchins’ on February 5, we welcomed two wonderful rug-hooking friends of Lorraine Haucke: Theresa Conrad and Loretta Widdows, who added greatly to the group.

Our donations of fabric and yarn were delivered to HomeFront for their Sewing Space program. They were very appreciative for the donations and it will be put to good use. I will continue to collect fabric and yarn that you are not using and will take it to HomeFront. If anyone is interested in seeing the Sewing Space and some of the projects that the clients have made, they would be happy to give you a tour on a Tuesday or Friday.
