Dear Naples Woman’s Club Members,


Beginning my year as your new president is a privilege and honor.  I applaud our terrific Past President, Lee Kraus, and look forward to working with her and the 2016-2018 Board of Directors. I want to especially thank them for being willing to help lead our fantastic organization.


In June, Lee Kraus and Jackie Pierce attended the GFWC Annual Convention in Baltimore, Maryland. The keynote speaker, Suzy Toronto, is one of todays’ most sought after artists and authors.  She created images and stories to inspire and empower the women attending. We can be proud of the nationally recognized awards we received. Thank you Jackie and Lee for representing us!


Over the summer, think about how you can best serve the community through the Naples Woman’s Club. Each of our committee chairs will welcome your participation.  In addition, increased volunteer opportunities will be available through the leadership of Wendy Taylor, Membership Chair. One of our goals is to provide additional volunteer opportunities to members.  Feel free to contact Wendy for ideas and suggestions.


Ginger Hitt and Jackie Ortiz, our new PR chairs, will inform local media sources, providing additional exposure the “good works” of the NWC.


Suzanne Harris, our outstanding Office Manager, will be working on the new directory to be available by the November meeting.  Be sure to let her know if you have email, address or phone number changes.


Pat Jolly, Communications Coordinator, will continue to email you with NWC updates. She has our utmost respect for doing so.


Enjoy your summer and I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall.


With sincere best wishes,




2016-2018 NWC President






From Our President, Jalna MacLaren
