“Resilient Women Change Lives”
As the new president of the Temecula Valley Woman’s Club, I am so proud of what the ladies of our club have been able to accomplish over the years, but never more so than this past year. T.V.W.C. has contributed so much to our local community, and changed the lives of many. Challenged by the pandemic, our ladies had to be resilient in order to accomplish their goals. Some of the amazing work we’ve done this past year can be seen on the Committees tab above; it is inspiring. As we celebrate the success of our “Go Fund Me” fundraiser, I would also like to acknowledge the creative committee whose hard work and ingenuity made it possible. In 2020 for the first time in 35 years we were not able to hold our Annual Holiday Home Tour. The “Help Them Dream Big” fundraiser made it possible to continue to provide scholarships for our local high school students, which has always been a part of our Mission. The success of this fundraiser was due to their efforts, the support of our members, and many others in our community.
As we go forward in 2021, I know that resilience is not something you accomplish, but something you must continue to work on—it challenges each one of us to keep going. We have become a stronger club because we have learned new skills that can be used in so many ways going forward, and we have so much to look forward to. We hope to soon be able to meet in person, something that we have all missed. Until then, the friendships and bonds that we have made in working together virtually will help us to continue to change lives. I look forward to the road ahead and taking this journey with all of you.
