Martin Luther King Jr. Day 21

: January 14, 2019 7:54 am : News
MN Leaders,
Be responsible LEADERS and PLEASE FORWARD this info to your CLUB  ASAP and to it’s members so they too can become familiar and assist in these initiatives. And please READ and utilize suggestions for the coming year beginning with Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan 21 activities. 
The possibilities are endless and I’m sure you already have an activity ready to put into action immediately on Jan 21 without even leaving your cozy, warm home… such as writing letters to service members or sending a thank you to a service member family or calling/emailing a service member in your community for their continued work. The possibilities are endlesss … maybe it’s emailing or writing a note to someone in a nursing home or assisted living…. or a thank you note to a club member or community member. 
 Let Dr. King’s spirit inspire your club’s day of service: “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
(It would be delightful if you would email me your club activities for Martin Luther King Jr Day). I look forward to the endless small things you can do in ONE DAY!

Every odd year, GFWC of Minnesota clubs are given the opportunity to honor a member who demonstrates the unique quality of empowering other women.  This is your chance to honor one clubwoman during the GFWC of Minnesota Annual Convention in Walker on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

The following criteria describes an Empowering Woman:
1.   Demonstrates outstanding contribution to your club and its projects.
2.   Exhibits significant leadership qualities and the ability to encourage others to develop their leadership skills.
3.   Portrays a positive attitude and willingness to empower others.

Please write a brief half-page description of your Empowering Woman’s contributions to your club and how she has empowered others. A picture suitable for reproduction would be great.  Be sure to include her activities at the district and state or international level if she has been involved.  The information and photos you provide will be compiled into a commemorative booklet for distribution at the  banquet..

Please submit your material postmarked by March 1, 2019 to:

“Unity in Diversity” Logo

“Unity in Diversity”  What your logo says

The Federation’s proud tradition of connecting with one another began in 1868 with founder Jane Cunningham Croly, a professional journalist from New York City.  In 1889, the official motto became “Unity in Diversity” by Sorosis President, Ella Dietz Clymer at a meeting of 61 clubs.  In 1892, a pin with the rising sun was chosen to identify each member.  In 1920, International Prsident, Alice Ames Winter updated the member to what it is today.  the logo illustrates the crusader’s shield, signifying enlightenment, emerging from the darkened world, represented by a black center,.  The band encircling the center signifies eternity: a fully risen sun on a field of blue symbolizes purity.  For constancy, bluesurrounds the letter GFWC and the motto “Unity in Diversity”
