2017 September Newsletter
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE FY17.18
Welcome back to a new academic year with new opportunities to connect with colleagues and friends! Beginning with Fall events and activities (AKA Fall conference), Club members are invited to a Brunch hosted by Sharon Armstrong on Saturday, September
23, 2017 (10 AM-noon) at the President’s campus residence. Event details will be
published in the Cal Poly Report and on our Club website www.womensclub.calpoly.edu . We hope to see you there!
Your Club officers have scheduled several new events throughout the 2017-18 year including a Dinner and a Movie “date” night tentatively scheduled in February 2018. We have also invited Bay Area Life Coach and author Sasha Mobley to facilitate a workshop in early 2018 for members (http://sashamobley.com). Mark your calendars now for our Holiday Party and Silent Auction scheduled for December 7, 2017 and the May Luncheon for May 5, 2018; both events will be at the SLO Country Club. Our April General
Meeting and Election will be held at Woods Humane Society on April 7, 2018 and includes a facility tour by CPWC Past President Joy Miller. We hope to see you at all of these events!
But there’s more! For section news, Patrice Iqbal would like to start a Home and Garden section that will include garden tours! Additionally, the Walk/ hike group will have a tour of the Pismo Preserve, as soon as we can schedule a date October or November. In
other words, stay tuned! Our Club Directory (available at the Brunch to paid members)
will list all our planned activities. If you find an event or activity that you would like to join as a volunteer, let any Board member know! We will also have information at the Fall Brunch.
Lastly, our Club has awarded two $1,000 general scholarships. The Board will also discuss a special first year $1,000 Van Asperen scholarship for a credential student using existing funds at the next meeting in early October. Once our newly established endowment has built up a reserve, this scholarship will be awarded yearly to a Liberal Studies or Credential student. Our Club will also continue to award a scholarship to help offset childcare expenses at the ASI Children’s Center. We will have more information about the students receiving these awards later this quarter!
