A Power Of Giving

Posted by Kimball Stadler, Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 @ 10:06am

  • Kathleen Ryan put together a wonderful recap of the impressive donations our WEC Sisters have contributed throughout the years.  We wanted to share this information with everyone.  Ladies, we really have made a difference in the lives of others. Thanks to each of you for your kindness and generousity:


    WEC and Community Involvement
    by Kathleen Ryan

    This holiday season is a time to reflect on WEC’s tradition of giving back to our Community.   As a Club WEC has a history of helping others through scholarship, mentoring and, supporting PACE, our named charity.

     

    * Women Empowering Women (WEW) Scholarship   Two $2,500 scholarships on an annual basis to women entering or reentering college to further their career as entrepreneurs, senior managers and executives.

       

    * New Tradition of taking up a collection to help feed the hungry at our November luncheon.

       In 2010 and 2011, WEC members contributed $1,600 for Lifenet for Families and those members who volunteered in the early hours at Sawgrass Mall on Black Friday raised another $7,000.  In total, WEC members raised a total of $8,600 to help feed hungry families in our community.


    * Support for PACE Center for Girls Broward-WEC’s named charity.

    Since December 2007, WEC has contributed $19,740 to support the girls at PACE Broward, has sponsored over 125 girls as guests at our monthly meetings,has collected gifts for the girls at our last 4 holiday parties, and WEC members have attended PACE special events and volunteered at the Center.

     

     WEC is a group of professional women who are generous in giving back to the community and empowering other women and girls, giving them tools that will bring them success in their careers.

Get SOCIAL with the WEC!

Judy Coughlin Shares Her MA. Rest and Rejuvenation

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Monday, October 29th, 2012 @ 10:48pm

  • Hi,

    I’m Dr. Judy Coughlin, the WEC’s newest member. In October I took a huge step for my personal well-being and took a week off from my stressful life as a Professor and caregiver for my daughter. I booked a one week stay at the Kripaulu center in Lenox MA. It was entitled, “Rest and Rejuvenation for people over 40.” There were 19 women and one brave man. Everyone came for different reasons, but most were tired from work and relationships etc., etc., Over the course of the week, we took many workshops on self-care, setting healthy boundaries, getting joy out of life, etc., etc., We ate 100% organic food daily in a communal dining hall. Breakfast was silent, it was nice to sit in silence and contemplate everything, yet be surrounded by people. The leader of the group told us we all need at least one good friend who will always be there for us, through thick and thin. Not 2 or 20, just one and that the people who are there for you are your Choir, and you can be a member of your own choir. I thought about joining the WEC, and realized I’ll have many new members in my choir as well as be in yours. The camaraderie with strong professional women is unparralled from any group I have been in before and I’m really looking forward to meeting more of you. At any rate, it was a phenomenal experience and one I highly recommend anyone take, wherever you go. I simply left my life for a week. It was hard, I had to find 24/7 care for my daughter and put everything in order at work, and I thought I was indispensable to all of them, but somehow that week went on without me and I truly did rest and rejuvenate. I’m looking forward to hosting the book club on Nov. 12 at my home in Davie and look forward to making more new wonderful women friends.

    Judy Coughlin Ph.D.

November Luncheon Speaker

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Monday, October 29th, 2012 @ 10:10pm

  • Back by popular demand our speaker is Ron Magill from Zoo Miami.

    His extensive experiences have taken him around the globe to explore the wonders of our natural world. From swimming with sea lions off of the Galapagos Islands to tracking tigers on the back of an elephant in India, his adventures have allowed him to live many of the dreams he had as a child. No place has made a greater impact on him than the magical continent of Africa to which he has traveled over 30 times. He considers traveling to the wilds of Africa a "safari of the soul" that will leave the visitor with an indelible impression of indescribable beauty from a world lost in time.

    Ron is an award-winning photographer and documentary producer whose images have appeared in publications and galleries around the world including the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. He hopes his images will help inspire an appreciation for wildlife along with efforts to protect it for generations to come.
