These are our two newest members. Amie Salinas on the left and Eliza Zapata on the right. These ladies will be assets to our chapter. Eliza is a member of our Board of Directors.
We had a great Christmas party at a member’s house and enjoyed getting to know each other better.
Some of our members volunteered to work with Enrich Seniors and put meals together and then deliver them to the elderly on Thanksgiving. We also wrapped gifts and delivered them to their homes for Christmas.
Our Block Kids Contest was held on January 27th and we had 5 kids participate from 1st grade to 6th grade. Our head judge was an instructor with the Greater Waco Advanced Manufacturing Academy (GWAMA). Good luck to our winner in the regional contest.
For WIC Week we have several things planned. We will be touring GWAMA and Skillpoint Alliance and have our meeting at the Waco Winery. Our members will volunteer with Esther’s Closet and help put up shelving in their storage room. Their vision statement is to equip and transform women to move them from poverty to self-sufficiency.
We have had speakers about using drones in the construction industry, improving women’s health and charity organizations.
Looking forward to the regional meetings coming up and getting to visit with other members from around the region.
