President’s Welcome Message
Here we are, waiting for Spring to spring forth. What a bumpy winter we have had, and in many locations, still are having. While we have enjoyed our warm homes, hot beverages of choice and the same company we have had for the past nine months......I know we all are looking forward to the COVID 19 immunizations to do their thing and allow us to once again be around and about.
A big shout out to Nancy Bentz and her Legislative Committee for a fabulous Zoom Rally in Tally. Twelve Legislators joined the call along with 60+ DKG Members, family members and friends. A great conversation was had and we were able to hear the many voices of our government with both Republican and Democrat views being shared.
I bring to you what I believe to be good news for Florida DKG members. A meeting was held February 1st and it was decided to hold our Spring Convention in a hybrid mode. We will have an in house meeting for those that are comfortable to be with us in person, but also offer the ability to Zoom the meetings and Breakout Sessions from your home. The schedule for our meeting will be abbreviated from what we are used to having because of restrictions and precautions that are in effect. Our convention will be April 30th though May 1st, Friday night and Saturday through lunchtime. The schedule and registration form can be found in this Rays edition and also on our Website.
As we coast into Spring and the end of the school year, please watch closely for emails that you may receive from me, Carrie Frye, your district director or chapter president. We will not overload you, but will only send messages of importance. Please note you may also be asked to respond to a message with a timely response. I thank you in advance for all you share with DKG and send best thoughts for a happy, healthy Spring.
Roses to all, Nancy Henning
