January 2018 message from Big Bird

Happy New Year from the Top Bird!!!!

Where in the world was was the Top Bird?  She was cruising for her Birthday, Christmas and New Years!  She came home sick and so her feathers got all ruffled. I haven't forgotten you all and had my flamingo gear with me.  I am now on the road to recovery and I don't want it again.  I know many of you had it as well and I hope that you too are on the road to feeling better.    

Thank you to all the members who have volunteered their time and talents throughout the year. It was a great year and we had a myriad of volunteer projects.  I am happy to say that some of the clubs after reading our project took them on as well.

Thank you to Sara Castelli for always getting our flock dues in on time.  Our reporting gal, Cathy Geary has told me that she is 2/3 through reporting for the flock.   She is the best in town!  Thanks Cathy for always doing a great job!

This top bird along with 68 others will be flying to Aruba to do a day of service with our GFWC Aruba Woman's Club.  Stay tuned as some of the flock members will be taking a boat to Flamingo Island where we will interact with the birds.  For a glimpse of what our pictures could look like see below and stay tuned!

Thank you for always Living the Volunteer Spirit!  Have a wonderful month and fluff those feather and stay warm.
Hugs Carole

(From Sara, Treasurer---Carole sent this several days ago but I was down and out with the BUG. Sorry for the delay. Next week emails will be sent to those who have not paid dues for 2018 yet.)

December message from Top Bird

To the Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock!   

Thank you to the Flamingo Flock for a “Fabulous” year!  It was a year filled with many volunteer projects that were accomplished by our members who are “Living the Volunteer Spirit.” 

I wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah and a Christmas filled with peace, love and many blessings.  May the joy of Christmas be with you forever!
Hugs from the Top Bird…   Carole

Big Bird's October Message

October 1, 2017
To the GFWC Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock:

It has been so long since I have written to the flock.  So much has happened during these past months. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria sure left their mark on Texas and Florida and the islands.  Everyone has been in my thoughts and prayers during these hurricanes and especially with those of you dealing with the aftermath.  

Thank you to those Flamingos that sent cancelled stamps to the Holocaust Museum in Massachusetts.  They have reached their goal of 11 million stamps!  They really appreciated our efforts in reaching their goal and it is no longer necessary to send stamps.  

Do you believe we're already in fall?!   And with that, just a reminder that dues are coming due!  The due date is NOVEMBER 1, 2017.  They are $25.00 a year. You may also use PayPal on our website.

Please send them to our Treasurer…

Thank you all for continuing to be the Fabulous Flamingos that you are and for “Living the Volunteer Spirit!”   And, as Suzy Toronto says… “Life is all about how you handle Plan B.”
Hugs from the Top Bird,
