A FAREWELL MESSAGE FROM MOLLY COOK, MEMBERSHIP VP, ACTING PRESIDENT
A note of thanks to all of you for your support, encouragement and loving kindnesses while I have been Acting President of our Club. Many of you know I signed up to be 2nd VP (Membership Chair) and ended up in the Presidents chair by positioning, not election.
Thanks to all of you, but especially our board of wise women, Erika Ferrari, Kathy Ryan and Ruth Kuttler, I have been able to do the job and learn A LOT!!! It has been my privilege to serve. Sincerely, Mary Alice “Molly” Cook
RAISE YOUR GLASSES – have a glass ready to Raise!! “… “A Toast to President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris!!!” “I promise it will be short and sweet”
BUT – Georgia holds the key to the Senate
Georgia is the only state with 2 senate races and they are both in a runoff. Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock NEED OUR HELP and Stacy Abrahms is “putting Muscle into the Georgia Runoffs.
I know as Democratic Women of Action you will want to help!!
Join us on November 19th to learn how you can participate in Stacy Abram’s program FAIR-FIGHT. Erika Ferrari will explain how we can make a difference by volunteering to make phone calls and donating to the two Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Ralphael Warnock of Georgia.
This is Democrat’s last hope to retake the Senate.
