The following were duly elected at our May meeting: Fern Smith, President, Vicki Connor, Vice President, Darlene Beers, Secretary, and Mary Minnucci, Treasurer. Past President, Isabel P. will install our new officers at our June 21st meeting which will be held at Effort Methodist Church at 7:00pm. That evening, our membership chairman, Cathy Bruno, will initiate the following new members: Robin B., Linda K., Shannon M., Lynne M., and Karen B.. As we continue to grow, there is so much more we can do to make our community a better place to live. A warm welcome goes out to these new members!

The Supplemental Food Pantry at EUMC will be the nonprofit for this month’s food donations. Their request for June is condiments – ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish etc.

May Picnic/Meeting- Thanks to Joan B. and Stacy M. for organizing our May Picnic along with the ants and some wild and crazy games. It was a great social time with lots of laughs! We congratulated our two scholarship winners, Kara Thourot and Hannah Stanhope, who shared their future plans and the college they will be attending. We wish them much success!

New 2021-22 Yearbook- Linda B. and Vicki C. will be preparing a yearbook for the upcoming club year. If you have any changes to your information (new phone # or address) please contact Linda. 

Quilts Made With Love- Seven members of our quilting group met at Effort Methodist Church in May. It was a very productive meeting but there are a few that need to be sewn together and machine quilted. If you could possible take a few to do that, please contact Mary M. or Pat M.  Due to summer commitments, we will not meet again until September.

Community Beautification Projects -This committee can use a few extra hands to spruce up the flower gardens at The West End Fairgrounds and The Western Pocono Memorial Park. Please contact Pat M. to volunteer. 2021

West End Fair- YAY, there will be a West End Fair this year the week of August 22nd thru the 28th. The fair will open at 3:00 and close at 9:00. This is fewer hours than in the past which makes it easier for scheduling shifts. In August, we will have a soup-making day at the Polk Firehouse and a day to clean the stand in preparation for the fair. The sign-up sheets for these two days and shifts during fair week will be available at our July meeting. This is our only fundraiser and always a lot of fun and fellowship!!

Save The Date- Our club will be celebrating 50 years as a Federated Women’s Club on October 2nd. The Anniversary Committee is planning a special event in celebration of our outstanding service to our community through the years.

June Happy Birthday Wishes- Lisa A., Marylouise D., Linda H., Fern S., and Gail U.   

Prayers- Continue to keep Kathy H. and Margaret K. in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with their health issues.
