Vivian Godfrey's Happy News

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, November 21st, 2013 @ 5:14pm

  • I am happy to tell my WEC friends that I have recently resigned my position as CEO of the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) based in Washington DC. I have been in that job for almost 5 years and it has been tremendously interesting and fun leading the Got Milk? campaign and the national Milk Mustache advertising program. However the downside to this job has been my weekly commute from Florida to DC and spending so much time apart from my husband and family. I will once again be working with my husband at Bluewater Books & Charts in Ft Lauderdale and also spending time managing my family business in London. I look forward to seeing everyone at our Holiday Lunch on December 13th.

Deb McLaughlin is a grandma!

  • Her daughter, Sarah, gave birth to beautiful Ashlyn Katsuko Odle on Saturday, 9/7, at 6:14pm - 7 lbs. 3 oz. and 19". She is truly a miracle, as there was only a 1% chance she would get pregnant! Thank you for all your prayers for this blessed event.

    More firsts - my son's company, HumaNature Studios is debuting its first game in the US - Doki Doki Universe. It's about a very cute robot learning about his humanity through the player. It's gotten an incredible write up in the electronic gaming magazines. 

    Please pray for the Kairos Outside weekend for women affected by incarceration, 9/27-29, West Palm Beach. I am the leader for the first one in this area after many years. The theme is from Isaiah and Psalms, "He came to heal the broken hearted."
