November 2013 Women in Business

  1. 1. November 2013 Issue #5 | 11/7/2013 As we step towards the Thanksgiving season, I want to take just a moment to thank every one of you! Our scholarship auction was great. So many of you donated and even more purchased. The auction raised over $2,000.00 this year. Every dollar from the auction will go towards scholarships. Each contribution will make a positive impact on the scholarship recipient. A special thank you to Jacoba and the committee that made the auction such a success. President’s Message Halloween with all the cute little ghost and goblins is now a memory as we speed toward the holiday season. There is a light dusting of snow resting on the mountaintops to remind us of the days to come. Save the Date! RS TO VP wib DAY .usu .edu November 12 11:55 am Alpine Cleaning and Restoration 177 S Main, Smithfield November Luncheon Speaker Tara Willilams “The Affordable Health Care Act, (The Individual Mandate)” Please take the opportunity to thank anyone outside WIB who donated an item and let them know how much was raised for scholarships. There is a letter available for your use if you would like. Please allow me to take a moment and thank the incredible group of women that serve on our WIB board. They are so willing to contribute of themselves. I am so thankful to have this opportunity to work with such incredible woman. A final thank you to Jacoba. Did you hear her on the radio? She did a fabulous job of representing our organization to the community. Please continue to invite guest to our luncheons and buy those extra raffle tickets!

Jacoba did a great job representing Women in Business and The Cache Chamber of Commerce. Thanks Jacoba!! Listen Here Did you know that for $500 we will name a scholarship after you or your business? Sure, the scholarship auction is over but that doesn’t mean you can’t donate to support educational scholarships for women in business this coming year.
