I hope this finds you well and ready to slowly get back to normal. The vaccines are being distributed, and hopefully by May most of our members will have been vaccinated. We have posted new activities for your perusal. We are still being careful in our plans so you will feel confident in participating.
We had 261 contributors to the 2021 Scholarship fund and once again will be providing four $3000 scholarships. We are planning our Scholarship Breakfast for June 4th. It will take place at the Winding Hills Golf Club in Montgomery in their Tent which can hold up to 200 people. This will ensure adequate ventilation and room to spread out. We are inviting the 2020 MARTA Scholarship winners who missed out on a celebration of their achievement as well as the 2021 winners. It should be a joyous return to normalcy.
We welcome our new Corresponding Secretary, Mary Kunzmann, to the Board and we have some switches in officers. Lynne Gates is switching to Treasurer and Joan Connolly will become 1st Vice President. This is due to Mary Lou Deitrich stepping down from Treasurer after 8 years at that post. A big thank you to her as well as to Jackie Gerken, our long-time Corresponding Secretary, and Harriet Beers, Past President and recently RENY/SEZ Liaison, who stepped down from their Board positions in the fall. We will miss their input at the Board meetings but hope to see them frequently at MARTA affairs.
We now have need of a Publicity chair who sends news releases to area newspapers a few times a year. If interested, please contact us: Contact
