LRCR Charity Golf Outing a Huge Success

On Friday, July 21, 2006 the Little River Casino Resort held their annual Charity Golf Outing. It was a full house at Manistee National Golf and Resort and the weather was perfect. The Women's Empowerment Giving Circle Fund created by the Women's netWork at the Manistee County Community Foundation is one of five recipients of the proceeds from this event.
Several women from the netWork volunteered to work at the outing and participate in events. This was a tremendous opportunity to educate others about the Women's netWork and the Giving Circle. Thanks to all who helped and donated to this event.
Please extend your thanks to the Little River Casino Resort staff and coordinator Karl Waitner. The monies we expect to receive will go a long way toward supporting the mission of the Giving Circle. Thank You!

August 17, 2006 Luncheon

The Women's netWork monthly luncheon will be held at the Tuscan Grille in downtown Manistee. The cost is $10 payable to the Tuscan Grille and it includes lunch and beverage. Time: 11:45-1:15pm. Janice Mc Craner and Kendra Thompson will report on their work with the two student mentees they began working with earlier this year as part of the Women's Empowerment Giving Circle Career Mentoring Program.
In addition, we will hold a discussion about forming a non-profit organization for the Women's netWork and creating a few teams to help with the processes we need to go through to formally organize ourselves. When the netWork was first started in May 2005, we never expected it to grow to the size it is today and we never expected so many great projects to develop as the result of the work of the netWork.
Forming a non-profit will be a wonderful opportunity to expand the programs we have started. It will open many doors to opportunities that will benefit all women and girls. Please come to the meeting prepared to share ideas and expertise. RSVP notices will be sent in early August.
