President's Message: Let's Be Thankful

November 2020

November is here already!  Where has the year gone? Although Thanksgiving is not until the end of the month, it is never too early to be thankful, especially considering what is going on in the world.

Now, more than ever, be sure to make time for your loved ones and dear friends. You may not be able to connect in person, but what about a simple phone call, sending an email or a text, or doing it the “old-fashioned” way, sending a note in the mail to let them know that you are thinking of them?  Let us not forget about all the front-line workers—doctors, nurses, first responders, etc.  They truly are heroes!  We should all be thankful to have them working hard, saving lives, and helping those in need in our communities. 

What about the service industry employees like wait staff, baristas, your delivery person, mail carrier, cashiers, etc.? We should be thankful for these folks out there providing services for us and putting themselves at risk. I do not know about you, but I know that because of COVID-19, I have been “making friends” with a lot of on-line companies. It seems like I am ordering something every week! Whenever possible, I make it a point to thank those who deliver my packages. Sometimes all we need to do is say, “Thank you!” You would be surprised how far a simple thank you goes.

As I look to the Board of Directors of Coastal Women’s Forum and our members, I am truly thankful to have you all in my life! Through CWF, I have made some great friends, and I look forward to reconnecting with everyone again soon. We will keep you informed about our in-person and Zoom meetings as we carry on throughout the year. I hope that I get to know those of you who are new to CWF and rekindle friendships with our members who continue to support our mission of Networking, Education, and Empowerment.

In closing, I want to wish you all a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. If you do plan to be with family and friends, please be safe and practice the 3 W’s as often as you can!

All my best,

CWF Members are women who own businesses, or are following careers in the for-profit and non-profit sectors. Other members are blissfully enjoying retirement or raising families. Some are new to New Bern and are seeking ways to establish themselves within the community. They are all energetically involved in pursuing their personal passions and often committed volunteers for the benefit of the community.
