President's Letter

 

Dear WCL Members,

 

This is an amazing organization!  I am proud to be a member of the WCL – a group of the talented, resourceful, strong women. We are connected through a common purpose:  to provide social, educational, and philanthropic benefits to the Weston Community.  Our force of dedicated volunteers has reached out to young and old, individuals, families, and groups for one hundred years. You are our ambassadors.  Please renew now and urge others to join!

 

I hope that you’ve had a chance to attend some WCL events this month. The Fall “Opening Coffee” was a spectacular success. A perfect fall day at Jan’s house with a great turnout demonstrating that the WCL is strong!  A large audience enjoyed the Speaker Series Event at Weston Golf Club with guest author Dawn Davis. Her uplifting message offered steps to manage internal stress and chaos.

 

The WCL’s lunches at the Council on Aging begin on Thursday, October 3rd. We can’t replace the Barn Café, but join us to socialize and grab a lunch between 11-1 downstairs at the Community Center. We hope to repeat this event on the first Thursday of each month if there is interest.  On October 10th, the Garden Club Event will feature a taste of Persian herbs and foods.  Everyone please join us to welcome new Garden Club President Mojgan Brumby!

 

Please save the date for two upcoming Centennial Events.  The Champagne Centennial Gala is November 16th. This event promises to be a wonderful celebration of our organization. Preparations are already underway for the Second Winter Festival on December 8 from 2:30-5:15 p.m. 

 

I’ll end this letter with a simple request...Engage!  Volunteer, join a committee (Winter Festival, Centennial Gala, WCL/COA Luncheon, etc.), attend an event or just reach out. The WCL is stronger because of you . . . our amazing members.

 
I'd love to hear from you.  Please contact me at: 339-222-8611(cell) or 781-647-5173(home) or

 

Sincerely,

Gina Hajjar

WCL President 2018-2020

 


Garden Club
 
A Taste of Morocco
Thursday, October 10, 2019
7:00 pm
 
Join the WCL Garden Club October 10th at 7 p.m.  as Lamia Mrabet, chef and owner of “Queen of Spice” will demonstrate ways to use Persian Spices & Herbs.  Attendees will then sample some prepared Moroccan dishes.  Sure to be a fun, memorable evening!
 

Now that Fall is here and activities are ramping up, it is time to renew your WCL membership if you haven't done so already.  Since this is our centennial year, we will be publishing a commemorative Centennial Yearbook with the names of all members in good standing as of October 31st included in the membership directory.  The WCL has a full calendar of activities and celebrations planned and we hope you will join us in commemorating our long history of giving back to the town of Weston.  Please take a few minutes now to ensure that you are included in the yearbook by renewing today.  
 
 

Philanthropy

The Weston Council on Aging (COA) supports the welfare and interests of the town's older adults and those who care for them.  The COA is in need of F.I.S.H. drivers. The F.I.S.H. Program (Weston’s Friends in Service Helping) matches local volunteer drivers with older adults needing occasional or short term rides to medical appointments locally and to Boston (one-way or round trip, depending on your schedule).
 
This is a great opportunity for the WCL to help the community and expand our local philanthropic goals.  Call the COA, 781-786-6280 and speak to Audrey
