2016-2017 President

“As full of spirit as the month of May, and as gorgeous as the sun in the mid-Summer..”  William Shakespeare
 
Summer is approaching, snow birds are heading north and our school year is about to end… It is time to think of all the wonderful opportunities we have this month to celebrate each other whether by celebrating Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, attending our monthly WEC luncheon or our Canon Circle, or just by showing our love and support to a friend…
 
I have always been a great believer that women should support and empower women. My admiration goes out to my fellow WEC members for not only their various business accomplishments but also because of their way of being toward my person and others.  The WEC ladies are working mothers, sisters and aunts who set a good example to our future women executives.  I hope that we all can inspire our future generation of women to dream big and be the best version of themselves that they can be.
 
This month’s activities are the following:
-       The Book Club scheduled for May 3rd at Rose White’s residence in Westin- Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.  The Book Club is always a meeting of minds, a get together for discussion, laughter, wine and for creating beautiful memories of friendship.


-       The Canon Circle hosted by Vicki Abernathy on Thursday, May 11th at the Boatyard Restaurant for a fun nautical themed evening.


-        The WEC luncheon held at the Lauderdale Yacht Club on Thursday, May 18th. Our keynote speaker is Maria Rutkin with Rutkin Marketing. She will be presenting: Women in Business: The 3 C’s of Power & Influence.  Maria’s firm supports Businesses Build Stronger Brands through Content Marketing & Online Lead Generation Strategies.
 
Please join me in congratulating Diana Fairbanks as our WEC president for 2017-2018.  Diana is passionate about WEC and its members.  I had the pleasure of working with Diana this past year on the board and I have developed an admiration and respect for Diana. She is the consummate professional and will really make a difference in our club and community.  We are glad to have her on the helm of the WEC Club and are looking forward to her leadership. Save the date for Diana’s retreat on Friday, June 9th at 6:00 pm at Carol Meteivier’s Club house.
    
I just like to close by: “Wishing you…A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you, a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you, and faithful friends near you. “ Irish Quote“As full of spirit as the month of May, and as gorgeous as the sun in the mid-Summer..”  William Shakespeare

JUNE BOOK CLUB

The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore

From the winner of the Oscar for the Best Screenplay for The Imitation Game in 2015 comes a superb historical legal thriller based on the famous 'War of the Currents' fought between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. In New York, in the late 1880s, the miracle of electric light is still in its infancy and untold riches and glory await the man who can power the nation with this new technology. Thomas Edison has won the race to the patent office for his electric light bulb and is now suing his one remaining rival, George Westinghouse, for infringement for the unheard-of sum of a billion dollars. To defend himself, Westinghouse makes a surprising choice in his attorney: he hires untested 26-year-old Paul Cravath who is fresh out of law school. The task facing Cravath is truly daunting - win. And the stakes are immense: the winner of the case will illuminate America. 'If Paul could not break the patent claim, Thomas Edison would have a monopoly on light itself...'
