President's Message: “March” on and Blossom!

March 2021

It is still officially winter until March 21, but around this time, I remember as a child eagerly awaiting those first signs of spring. Among my favorite indicators of the season, are the pussy willows—those branches of silvery gray buds that appear on the pussy willow trees near meadows, swamps, and streams. Spring is a time for rebirth. A time when the grass begins to grow again, daffodils begin to bloom, and the birds seem to sing a bit louder at the break of daylight. As we maintain a steady course to move through this year, in keeping with the theme of Prism of Possibilities, I know we will persevere and continue to blossom as an organization as well.

We are hard at work planning programs that will excite our members. Yes, although we are still unable to meet our fellow CWF sisters in person at our monthly meetings, we will continue to have programs monthly to help educate and empower our members.

Our March Trade Share event is being postponed to a later date, and in its place, we will hold an evening March meeting via Zoom, so be on the lookout for that information. As the weather gets warmer, our hope is that we may be able to host a monthly meeting or two outdoors. In fact, put your thinking caps on for the 2021 Hat Social. This is our annual event that ends our year in June. Think about the prism and the colors that shine through like a rainbow. That being said, the hat social theme for this year is “Rainbows”—however you imagine them!  We anticipate being able to gather as a group to show off our themed hats/outfits and maybe even masks and have a lot of fun in the process! 

Updates on our meetings will be in our monthly newsletters and posted on the CWF website. Be sure to get out as the season changes and soak up the warmer weather.  Let us continue to “March” on and blossom. Please stay safe and healthy!
