Our luncheon in October was a smashing success, although no pumpkins were sacrificed. Thanks go to Brigitte Bourret as the new Programs Director, she did a great job! This was the first time since early 2020 that we were able to fill the room. There was energy as we came together in person with old and new friends. We are also scheduling monthly Coffee Meet & Greets as well as Happy Hours for informal gatherings. Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming opportunities to connect.
As we are wrapping up celebrating 50 years of SRWC, the Power of 50 for Education fund has about $41,000. We believe our goal of $50,000 will be met by the end of the year. This will be transformational for south Deschutes County at a time when educational lapses have affected so many. What excites me most is our $50,000 will not be the only support. It is seed money for other service providers working through a collaborative to deliver a sustainable educational impact. We have been committed to south Deschutes County for more than 20 years. With this significant project, other existing and new providers are seeing what a difference we can make together. Cheryl Storm, as the Chair of Power of 50 for Education is able to answer any questions about the initiative. Check out her update below.
The Sunriver Women’s Club really is the catalyst for this unprecedented expansion of educational services in our community and I am so proud of us!
