kitty lichtyPRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

What wonderful meetings, activities and events we have planned for March and April!

You won’t want to miss our elegant evening of dining and dancing at the Black and Bling Ball on Friday, March 6. If you have not made your reservation, don’t delay!

The Nominating Committee received many recommendations for our Women’s Club 2015-2016 officers. Their report will be presented at the March meeting for your consideration. At the April meeting, the membership will be asked vote on the slate of officers. Inauguration of new officers for 2015-2016 will take place at the May meeting. Any recommendations received by the nominating committee for other Board positions will be passed on to the incoming president for her consideration.

There are so many people working to provide wonderful opportunities for our membership. The success of our Women’s Club is a direct result of all our members stepping up to the plate and taking leadership positions. Please continue taking an active role for the remainder of this year and consider volunteering your talents for 2015-2016.

I wish you the “luck of the Irish” and many blessings. See you at the March 23 meeting and luncheon!
  
Kitty Lichty, President







sharon gilmorePROGRAMS

Our speaker is Peggy Kelsey, a professional photographer who was inspired to begin the Afghan Women's Project after meeting with a delegation of Afghan women who passed through Austin in 2002.  She traveled to Afghanistan the following year and created a photo-documentary chronicling the narrative histories of a wide variety of women in the area.  In the spring of 2010, she revisited the country to meet new women and to gain new insights.  She now travels around the country sharing her slide presentations and exhibit. 

Her book "Gathering Strength: Conversations with Afghan Women" was published in October 2012 and has received enthusiastic critical acclaim.  She has also just published an article in the online Journal, ASPECT:RATIO, a magazine of Photojournalism. 

Please join us for a riveting discussion and some of the most beautiful photography revealing the strength of womanhood.

Sharon Gilmore, 1st Vice President
