Letter from Bibby: Programming for 2020-21

Dear Members,

Several weeks ago the Board met to discuss the status of programs for the 2020-2021 year.

Due to Covid19, we decided not to have any programs in October or November. We reached this decision after much discussion and with regret.

We feel we must follow the State’s Guidelines for the safety and good health of all our members and friends.

IF public health issues improve significantly we hope to have an informal Christmas gathering in December… stayed tuned!

At this time we plan to move forward with regular programs in January, 2021.

A Dues Notice will be mailed out in early September and we hope all will return them promptly. Our Treasury is in a healthy condition, but expenses continue.

Please feel free to contact any member of the Board if you have questions or comments.

May you all stay healthy and safe.

 

With Best Wishes,

Bibby Veerman, President

Founded in 1914 by a group of eight women who wanted to form a women’s club, the Litchfield Women’s Forum of Litchfield, CT, is still in existence and thriving.

 

 

 

The original intent of the founders was to bring together women for “an interchange of 20190711_085408thoughts on subjects of general interest.” In the beginning, these gatherings were held in women’s homes and the women themselves researched the topic and presented the program followed by a tea.
As time went on, guests were invited to speak on a wide variety of topics. Well known presenters have included Eleanor Roosevelt, Katherine Ann Porter, Igor Sikorsky, Paul Winter, Elizabeth Gilbert and many, many more.  From the initial meeting of 15 women, the organization now has a membership of over 140 women and men and continues to bring educational, thought-provoking, and entertaining programs to the community.

Our scheduled for 2019-20 programs will be announced soon!
