WCGBR: News & Updates

May President's Prose

Greetings Members, Friends, and Supporters,
It time to celebrate! The Women’s Council of Greater Baton Rouge is proud and excited to announce the selection of the 2017 Silver Magnolia Award Honorees.  Join us as we celebrate and honor Ruth Addison, Willie B. Eddards, Roberta Guillory, Christine Richardson, and Natalie Romain.  These distinguished women have made tremendous contributions to Baton Rouge area communities through their dedication and commitment to serving others.  I hope many of you can join our event sponsor, Peoples Health, other members, and guests as we celebrate this class of outstanding women at the Awards Tea on May 12 at the Baton Rouge Crowne Plaza Hotel.  Tickets are on sale now via our web site.  Seating is limited, so reserve your place now.
Pack you lunch and join us at our General Membership meeting at 11:30 am on Thursday, May 11 at the Goodwood Library.  Bring your questions regarding women’s empowerment and prepare to participate in an interactive discussion with members of the “The Dance in the Sun Experience” Panel.
This is a member driven organization and the participation of our members has always given the organization extraordinary strength.  I want to thank all our members who continue to give their time, talent, and energy to support the work of the Council.    
Our world is ever changing and we must as an organization be constant in our examination of what we need to do to stay relevant and grow. The Council leadership invite our members to join us in taking a fresh look at how we serve you and our public.  Your suggestions and comments are always welcome.
Thank you for visiting our website. I look forward to meeting you or hearing from you.  It continues to be a pleasure for me to serve.
Paula Braxton, President
