President's Message

    It’s hard to believe that we are wrapping up another UAB Women’s Club Year!  What an adventure we’ve had!  Starting with our kick off, where we announced our partnership support of the Alys Stephens Eric Essix Concert. Then our incredible success at kicking off the UAB Women’s Club Scholarship Endowment; raising our goal of $25,000 while also supporting our Annual Scholarship to allocate $7,000 to this year’s recipient, Deanna Poe!!  What an awesome group of women are involved with our club!  Your generosity is without match!!  We want to celebrate this year’s exceptional success, with one final event on May 22nd!!  We will have a Champagne Reception at the Visual Arts Center!!  We hope that you will join in the fun!!

    We also expanded our club interest groups this year and the feedback has been very positive!  I am looking forward to another year of increased activity with the book clubs, play group, food and fun, walking group, travel group and movie group!!  Let me know if you have an idea for a new interest group for next year and we will be glad to add it!!

    I am excited about putting our plans together for next year at our Old Board/New Board meeting on May 9th.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email!!  We have many small volunteer positions available for next year.  If you are willing to commit some of your time to your UAB Women’s Club, call or email me to discuss a spot that works for you!  Our programs and projects work very smoothly when a lot of members take on small tasks!! 

    I want to thank every member that participated in some way with our club this year.  Some of you I see every month, while others join us from time to time….either way is perfect!!  We want to be to you, what YOU need from us!!  Have a safe and happy summer and I will see at the Champagne Reception!!                                            Valerie Thomas
