August 2013 Newsletter
“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.”
Margaret Fuller, journalist, critic, and women’s rights advocate
The dog days of summer are here. That phrase really sums
up summer’s sultry days that encourage you to take a
moment to enjoy the warmth, the blue sky and the sunny
day. I think that our August meeting will allow us to pause
and consider the beautiful valley that we are blessed to live
July was a great month for Women in Business! We had an
exciting speaker from the Leonardo Museum in Salt Lake
City. I encourage you to attend one of the fascinating
exhibits that will be on display this year. It was very
informative to hear how they raise money for those exhibits.
After learning how many dollars are raised for an exhibit our
scholarship goals seem attainable.
Over the past month, the Executive Board has been
reviewing and updating the WIB Bylaws. As we review the
purpose for WIB, I wanted to remind us all of the two main
reasons we are part of this tremendous organization.
Continued on page 2
Women in Business provides networking and professional
development opportunities and helps to raise funds to
provide scholarships to women who demonstrate financial
need and meet other scholarship criteria. As members of
WIB, my hope is that you will take advantage of the
networking opportunities. If you have an idea for a subject or
speaker for upcoming meetings, please let me know.
Because a great part of our focus is funding for scholarships,
we’d like to remind you to buy extra raffle tickets at every
monthly lunch. Please plan to participate in our annual
auction at the October meeting. Every dollar raised helps us
fund scholarships. Also reaching out, meeting, and
networking with the other members every month will
maximize your experience with Women in Business.
With all of us working toward the same goals not only will you
enjoy your time spent with WIB, we will continue to provide a
benefits the women of our community. LolaJean "LJ" Bolton

Dear Women in Business:
It is time for another fun filled networking year! We have another great schedule of exciting
speakers; we hope you will join us this year. This past year we have had a tremendous amount
of support. Our scholarships were a huge success because of you! Thank you again. Our
meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 11:45 a.m. at various locations.
As you are aware, the mission of the Women in Business Organization is to raise monies for the
educational needs of women. Donations and lunch tickets from its members raise these monies.
When members RSVP and then do not attend the luncheon, Women in Business is forced to
cover the lunch ticket expense. For this reason, "no shows will be billed $12.00" which enables
the organization to give all of its monies to scholarships rather than the cost of the lunch.
Please fill out your renewal application and return to the registration desk at the Women in
Business luncheon or mail to Denise Irwin, C/O University Inn & Conference Center, 5005
Old Main Hill, Logan, Utah 84322 or you may complete the application online. Please make
check payable to WOMEN IN BUSINESS. Thank you.

The Bingham family: (from left) Megan, Hunter, Jason, Stacey,
Gage, Sierra and Lindsey
In the summer of 2006, 6-year-old Sierra Bingham, niece to two of New Dawn’s employees, was diagnosed with
cardiomyopathy. This is a condition where the heart weakens, becomes enlarged, and cannot pump blood
efficiently. She was transported to Packard Children’s Hospital in California, where she was placed on a
transplant list to await a heart. Unless she received a new heart soon, she would die. After a long ordeal, a
heart did become available and Sierra became the beneficiary.
In May 2012, Lindsey, Sierra’s 8-year-old little sister, was diagnosed with the same disease. She was flown to the
same hospital where Sierra had been treated, and the family’s ordeal began again. Lindsey received a new
heart just a few months ago—on Valentine’s Day— and so far is recovering well.
But . . . two heart transplants, the procedures and care leading up to them, and all the medication, testing,
and biopsies that will follow throughout their lives don’t come cheap. Nor will transplants and treatment for the
other three kids, all of whom show early symptoms of the disease and will need new hearts at some point. The
Bingham family is facing monumental health care expenses.
New Dawn Technologies regularly awards community grants to the winners of drawings at our trade shows in
lieu of prizes. It’s an honor to award the Binghams, a local family and a relative of New Dawn employees, with
a Community Grant.
The Binghams were featured on Dateline NBC Wednesday, June 5.
