Congratulations for those who worked so hard in making this dream a reality. Especially Brenda Harper and Katie Smith of Sango fce with Pat Woods President. You can order your book from any of Sango and also County President Elect Pamela Albaro and Region President-Barbara Beeman (who both gave time to this project with Pamela giving so much we must make her an honorary Sangoian). It seems that these same people found time to also give weeks to the Smith Trahern Trees of Christmas along with dedicated others.

Announcing Warfield fce Club's "War Chest!" is available for showing/opening at you next event or meeting". The second picture is a Votes for Women" pin created by Jim's Jeams that has been purchased. Warfield will also be accepting your tired, your poor, your broken jewelry for re-purposing and the you can buy our one of a kind/designer jewelry with all funds going to the "Tennessee Triumph Statue" says Warfield fce Club President Delinia Store. Ask her about this project and plan on viewing the jewelry soon.
A war chest is a reserve of funds used for fighting a war/conducting a campaign. The campaign is to donate to the "Tennessee Triumph” our Montgomery County Statue to commemorated the 100th Year of Votes for Women.
The Statue of Liberty has a picture attached to remind us on this statue if a woman and of the most recognizable poem “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus’ sonnet, New Colossus, which she wrote for a fundraiser auction to raise money for the pedestal upon which the Statue of Liberty now sits. The poem did not receive much recognition and was quite forgotten after the auction. In the early 1900's and after Lazarus’ death, one of her friends began a campaign to memorialize Lazarus and her New Colossus sonnet. Warfield will be collected these funds and will donate the sum each year to add to the Tennessee Triumph War Chest!

Congratulations to all the Family and Community Education Clubs educational/fund raising/awareness efforts and events; Hillwood fce was the first with a Votes for Women Tea this Spring that made well over $1,000. They have set the bar for us all to see if we can raise that each year. Sango is in the middle of creating a Cookbook. Country Living has "Change for Change" jars to Celebrate what has been done. They have made many jars for us all and any other group to have to pass around at each meeting. IF YOUR CLUB/ORGANIZATION NEEDS AN IDEA TO HELP BRING AWARENESS TO VOTES FOR WOMEN AND TO RAISE FUNDS "The 2020 Vision" Committee has a great willingness to help facilitate a fund raiser for you and your group. Our goal would be for at least 90% of funds raised would go to the fund raiser to be an officially recognized fund raiser no matter how big or small.

Great Time at Centennial Park again this year and yesterday we had several new Family and Community Education Members fill in the gap for those out of town. Good lunch, great fun and the umbrellas provided much needed signage and shared.
"We have not forgotten our trip to Seneca Falls New Your, (where it all started) headed up by Barbara..we will get to it. Maybe after the Anniversary to celebration all the success for TN.
