We ended 2019 with a wonderful holiday celebration. As always, the party was successful because of what you each literally brought to the table. From appetizer to beverage to dessert, the food members shared was truly a gourmet extravaganza! The opportunity to socialize with members and several candidates created lively conversation. And again, as always, many hands make light work and the end of the evening cleanup was a breeze.
The holidays are over and 2020 is finally here. And 2020 will be a nonstop year for Democrats and probably be the most consequential election year in our lifetime. Yes, we will work hard, but remember, when women vote, democrats win!!
We have many well qualified democratic candidates campaigning in federal, state and local elections. Even though the presidential candidates each bring a unique perspective to their platform, one common thread has been repeated again and again. They each are ready to support the candidate selected by the Democratic party and actively campaign for that individual. ANYBODY but Trump!!!!
Happy New Year! Hello Members of the Democratic Women’s Club of Collier County!!
Nirupa Netram, Director of Foundation & Legal Operations, Southwest Florida Community Foundation
Special Immigration Guest Speaker Nirupa Netram, Director of Foundation & Legal Operations, Southwest Florida Community Foundation will be speaking about the Immigration Program in SW Florida. The Immigration Program Grant is a program of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, Inc. Funding for this program comes from The Florida Bar Foundation and national funders.
This program is designed to increase the quality of life in sustainable and equitable ways for immigrants and refugees in Southwest Florida. The grant program is focused on providing legal services and related services to immigrants and refugees in our region as they continue to recover from the disastrous impact of Hurricane Irma and recent changes in immigration law and policies. Foundation leaders recognize that there are other important issues facing immigrants and refugees not funded by this program.

DWC Collier is growing! With less than 289 days until the 2020 election, we need the energy, creativity, and hard work of all our members to keep the blue wave momentum!
Our club is effective when we have a full membership and members who are involved in our work. New members are very important and we encourage all members to actively recruit new members.
I am grateful to all of you for making our club a welcoming and responsive organization.
We are thriving because of the efforts of all our members, the hard working board of directors: Judi Onheiber, Dr. Kathleen Ryan, Erika Ferrrari, Ruth Kuttler and our other communications magician Tamara Paquette.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Peace, Tasha Van Hest, President, DWC Collier
