From the Desk of GFWC MN State President, Jean Walker

30 March 2020

Dear Members of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Minnesota,

It is with sadness that I am notifying you of the cancellation of the GFWC of MN Convention 
scheduled for May 1-3, 2020.

I am notifying GFWC Headquarters of our change in plans as well and Mississippi
Valley Region President Kathleen Flock.

After considering all the information currently available from the Center for Disease
Control and the MN Department of Health, Your Board made this difficult decision. When
the infection rate is halted, your Board is planning to extend the Fall Workshop one day where we can gather and celebrate the year, the 2019 awards will be given out and we will meet our new Club, District and State officers for 2020-2022.

I am working with our Leadership Chairman Yvonne Schilplin on a way for our elections to take place by email or phone conference. Yvonne will be emailing a letter explaining the process that you can use to get our elections completed so the new officers can take charge for 2020-2022. We all know this is a trying time and if we work together, we will get this done.

I pray for your well being and good health in the coming days. Remain calm and STAY HOME!

Yours in Federation,

Jean Walker, GFWC of MN State President 2018-2020
