March note from the Top Bird

To the GFWC Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock Cyber Club 

Good Morning Flock members!   How you all doing today?  Isn't it hard to believe it is March already…three months into the New Year and the flock is flying high!  We had a great membership increase…wow… we now have 69 paid dues members!  My goal for the cyber club is to be over 100 members.  We all know someone that volunteers but says…Oh… “I don’t like to go to meetings.”   This is a great opportunity to tell them about our cyber club and all the volunteering we do throughout the United States while never attending a meeting!  It can be done and we are proving this every day.

Here is another great NEW project for everyone!  Sara Castelli told me about this a while ago.  We all love to write letters and that was proven when I asked everyone to send letters for the veterans going on an Honor Flight.  Here is another way to help ladies who are taking chemo for breast cancer.  Have you ever sat in a chemo room yourself, or watched while someone was attached to all kinds of tubes?  Sometimes they have to sit there for hours on end.  Well this organization would like you to write letters of encouragement.  Please go to  Once again, here is another great project because we all can do this from home and from whatever state you live in.  Thank you and let’s do it!

  1. No matter technology has overcome all our old traditions and yes they more convenient too. But they can never ever replace the charm of letter writing.
