President’s Message

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW!

 

1. Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 11AM- 10PM: FUNDRAISER AT CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN (CPK). On this day, CPK will donate 20% of your meal receipt to the CPWC Scholarship Fund when you give your server your coupon. All you need to do is bring our coupon with you (it’s in this newsletter), order, enjoy your meal with your favorite person or a group, and then maybe enjoy a movie at the Downtown Cinema or Palm Theatre. This event is listed in your directory as “Dinner and a Movie” -- this is a great opportunity to see one of the many nominated and award-winning movies. Check the Downtown Cinema movie schedules at: http://www.movieexperience.com or the Palm Theatre schedule http://www.thepalmtheatre.com . Tuesday is a discounted movie ticket price of $8.50 at the Downtown Cinema. Please feel free to make copies of the CPK fundraiser coupons to give to family and friends!

 

2. February also begins the search for next year’s Board members. Alice Loh and her nomination committee members would love to hear from you if you have been thinking about serving. We (Chris and Val) have enjoyed our two terms and will be available to answer questions and/or field your ideas. We both believe in supporting new Board officers! As we approach our 100th Club anniversary in 2024, we hope our Club will flourish and continue to provide a proactive and friendly network for members with service to one another, to our students and to the University!

 

3. Wednesday, March 14, 2018 @4:30PM-- Next Board meeting to be held at the downtown Alumni Welcome Center. Join us; the meeting is open to all.

 

4. Saturday, April 7, 2018 @10AM- noon- Our Election and General Meeting will be held at Woods Humane Society Community Room (875 Oklahoma Ave, SLO off of Hwy 1) with an optional tour of the facility after the meeting. Joy Miller is chairing this event.

 

5. In addition to electing a new Board of Officers, we will also be voting on expanding our membership to include Cal Poly Alumni members. This has been proposed in the past, but we believe the time has come to invite our alums to join us. After meeting with Ellen Cohune, Assistant VP for Alumni Outreach at our last Board meeting, we all feel that alumni could bring new energy to the Club, as well as expand opportunities for professional and personal growth in all our sections, fundraising and Club goals.  Tell us your ideas and get “on Board” to take our Club into its second 100 years!

 

Hope to see you all at the California Pizza Kitchen before seeing a great movie! Check our website (http://womensclub.calpoly.edu ) for specific times and movie we’ll be attending!

President’s Message

Have you made your new year’s resolutions?! You know-- the ones we all make:

  • Try to eat a healthier diet and exercise more
  • Try a new activity at the gym
  • Work on personal and professional goals including attending the Strengthsfinder workshop (more on that in this newsletter)
  • Be mindful, take time to meditate and remind yourself of all for which you are grateful.

As we begin our final 6 months as your Co-Presidents, we are both thankful for your participation in our Club especially in our events! The SLO Country Club’s festive decorations for our Holiday Party set the tone for our evening and was coordinated with Cal Poly alum Brooke Campbell! The In Time Trio boosted our spirits with their self- described “classy, sassy and cool” holiday music while dinner was served, and the Silent Auction raised $554.00 for the ASI Children’s Center scholarship!

A SPECIAL THANKS!

Please join me in thanking the following for their generous donations to the ASI Children’s Center Scholarship Silent Auction: Tolo Cellars (Kymberly Fazzio), SLO Trader Joe’s, Brian & Blanca Kesner, Talley wines (Sasha Mobley & Val Barboza), Linda & Luc Soenen, Chris & Bob Hoover, Wild Horse wines (Elaine Ramos Doyle), Patrice Iqbal, Cari Moore, Joan Kennedy, and Wearable Art (Pat Hermenegildo). Erika Callero and Natalie White volunteered with pre-event planning, silent auction set-up and coordination! Elaine Ramos Doyle and Joan Kennedy handled all aspects of the Silent Auction checkout!

 

Your Club Directory lists the upcoming events as does our Club website -  http://womensclub.calpoly.edu . We hope you will join us as we jump into 2018 and bring a friend! Remember, if you would like to be part of the event planning, we need volunteers!

This year we will invite Cal Poly Alumni to join us for our events and to become members. Alumni Outreach Assistant VP Ellen Cohune will be speaking at our January 9, 2018 Board meeting to begin the process. Board meetings are open to all-- please join us at the new Alumni facility downtown at 4:30PM for the next meeting.

 

WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY & HEALTHY 2018!

The Club awarded two $1,000 scholarships for 2017-18. Our first recipient, Ellis Fryer was featured in the November/December newsletter.  Our second recipient is Annie Campbell. Annie is a Political Science major. Annie stated that it was an honor to be a recipient of the Cal Poly Women’s Club scholarship. This will give her more time to focus on her studies, women’s rights and student activities. She is active in the Cal Poly’s Young Democrats, a strong supporter of women’s rights and Planned Parenthood. One future goal is to serve as an Intern in Washington D.C. Needless to say, this has been a very busy year for political activities and women’s issues; Annie is very active in both. She thanks the Cal Poly Women’s Club for granting her this scholarship.

2017 October Message from our Co-Presidents Val & Chris

Sep 20, 2017


PRESIDENTS’ OCTOBER MESSAGE!

Summer is over and my favorite season autumn is here with our first Club event-- an absolutely fabulous brunch hosted by Sharon Armstrong! This event differed from our past afternoon receptions and a resounding success! Please join me in a huge “thank you” to Sharon for hosting the brunch and to her staff for their support of the Cal Poly Women’s Club membership and guests! If you attended, you know what a privilege it is to enjoy visiting the President’s campus home and how much we all look forward to this event.

At this year’s brunch, we had a wonderful response to our planned events, as well as our ongoing ASI Children’s Center scholarship fund. Thank you to all who donated including Sharon Armstrong, who asked that our Club “thank you” gift be donated to the ASI award. Additionally, we are working with the Financial Aid Office to award two $1000 scholarships. More on the recipients once they have been notified. Last year’s fundraiser at the the Holiday Party Silent Auction and SLO Little Theater boosted our scholarship fund allowing us to increase the award amount. This year, we will again include a silent auction at our Holiday Party (7 December 2017) and a new fundraising event in February 2018 “Dinner (at the California Pizza Kitchen) and a Movie.” We’ll publish the details in a future newsletter and on our website: http://womensclub.calpoly.edu .

Check out the newest member interest section: Home and Garden (Patrice Iqbal and Blanca Kesner, Chairs), which will include local garden tours. The Professional Women’s Section is trying new ideas. If you have an idea for a meeting, contact Tracy or any Board member. The Occasional Walk Group will tour the Pismo Preserve on Sunday 29 October 2017. A free shuttle service from the Pismo Beach City Gall (760 Mattie Rd., PB) will take us to the trailhead. Details for all this month’s meetings are listed in this newsletter. If you have questions, please contact the Section Chair, Tracy!

Hope to see you at one of our get togethers soon! Also check out our Directory for scheduled events and join us!

Happy Autumn -- Your Co-Presidents,
Val Barboza and Chris Hoover
