I am so excited about our WEC New Year, New Board, New Logo, New Website, New Luncheon Location and New Energy! Our new board is also excited about this new year with WEC! We are ready to get this party started! I loved the energy in the room at our Annual Retreat ~ everyone was warm, mixing and welcoming to all. Cindy Fox is our new V.P. of Membership and has big plans for us! We are going to have a spectacular Member-fest with a 25 year old entrepreneurial dynamo as our speaker! So break out your contacts and invite your friends and colleagues, that may qualify for membership, to come join us for the September 14th luncheon at the Tower Club. Shelley Pumphrey has stepped up as our new V.P. of Community Involvement and is cheerfully working with our new WEW scholarship recipients and PACE Center for Girls. Our V.P. of Communications, Karen Dudden-Blake has orchestrated the most beautiful new WEC website! We will be taking you for a tour of the new website during our August 15th luncheon at the Tower Club so you can see how easy it is to navigate. Reserving for luncheons and events will be seamless on this new site! WEC is your organization ~ We need you to participate~ We want you to participate~ We need your energy!

AUGUST BOOK CLUB
WHERE'D YOU GO BERNADETTE
BY MARIA SEMPLE
A compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.
To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence - creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
