Registration Fall Workshop
President’s Welcome Message
It has been quite a Spring, but not the one I was expecting. It was a very difficult decision for me to make in cancelling the District V and District VI Meetings, but under the concerns and conditions in our state at that time I felt it was in the best interest of our members to do so. We are all learning to live with a new “normal” in our daily lives, with staying at home and practicing social distancing. Even wearing masks and gloves feels a little odd to me, but many seem to be following the directives we have been given. Reports at this time from our members who have exhibited symptoms of the virus are good. Some tested negative and were treated for allergies, colds, or other minor ailments. Of the ones that first tested positively they are now testing negative and are getting back their strength.
I hope you are able to take care of each other by electronic means or even using the telephone. If you have not touched base with those in your chapter, please take the time to do so. As always, if there is anything I can do, or one of the elected board members, please let us know.
I am, at this time, planning our Fall Executive Board Meeting in September. Our meeting will be a wonderful time for everyone to see members and catch up on business, training and the work of our state society. I hope each and everyone of you will make your plans to attend as we celebrate “Leadership in Florida”.
Together we CAN get through this!
Nancy Henning, President
DKG Florida State Organization 2019-2021
