President’s Message - A Fond Farewell by Kay Wildt
May Peace and Love reign in your hearts and homes as we approach the end of 2017, and may you and your loved ones have a blessed and Merry Christmas.
While “Thank you” never quite seems enough, mine comes from the heart. Thank you to all the members of MRW who have so generously supported the projects our board implemented during the last four years.
You made a real difference in the quality of life in our county. From literacy projects, helping babies and mothers, feeding the hungry, donating toys and Teddy bears, helping the animal shelter, remembering law enforcement each year, aiding our military through myriad projects, MRW members always gave of themselves. You are dear to me, and I cherish your friendship.
It has been an honor to serve with the talented, wonderful women who selflessly volunteered on our board over the last four years: Mariann Benway, Meg Lindenberger, Carole Alfieri, Dorinda McNamara, Lisa Sheridan, Linda Robson, Joan Ward, Deb Spelman, Ruth Iverson, Judie Luse, Bekah Bibb, Nancy Fiorillo, Diana Barton, Diane Ingold Lydia Boesch, Mary Ann Manning Cathy Jackson, Ellie Ray, Peggy Smetana, Pam Venet, Dawn Wehrum, Sandi Carl, Connie Lovell, Kim Tackett, Libby Carter, Miriam Chu, Andrea Moore, Donna Bartrip, Laura Morgan, Lane Bergstrom, Pud Kent, and Barbara Para. Thank you for your service, your loyalty, your leadership and your guidance.
A special thank you to a few outstanding board members – and you know who you are, who individually and collectively impacted my life in ways I cannot express; I will always be grateful.
Four years ago Mariann Benway and I found kindred spirits and teammates in one another as Army Moms; in fact, we call ourselves “Two Ranger Moms.” We worked for the betterment of MRW, and that joint effort multiplied our outcomes exponentially. Mariann, thank you for all that, and more, for your friendship.

Our November speaker, Stan Bradshaw, spoke about a global initiative called The ZOE HELPS PROJECT, that serves seven countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and targets areas of extreme poverty with high concentrations of vulnerable children. Building on a foundation of indigenous staff, community leaders, and local resources, ZOE empowers orphans and vulnerable children to become socially, economically, and spiritually strong, transforming entire communities in the process. If you would like to have Stan as a speaker for your church or club, contact us for more information.
