President’s Message – October 2015

The DAORN Educational Seminar and Vender Fair is approaching fast.  The workshop will be at the Lowry Conference Center on Friday October 30th.  The day promises to be a wonderful educational opportunity, with fantastic speakers and breakout sessions.  Please pre-register to help the committee plan for the number of lunches needed.  As always, thank you to our Vender partners for supporting us, without them the Fall Workshop would not be possible!!   DAORN Fall Workshop Brochure 2015

At September’s Chapter Meeting Ellen Lord and Tammy Woolley presented information on the DAORN/Bill Lord Memorial Golf Tournament and distribution of funds over the past several years.   it was requested by the membership that I post the information from the bylaws on how funds are to distributed from the Ways and Means Committees.  I found the distribution of Ways and Means funds in a previous version of the Duties of the Treasurer (prior to the May 2015 update) where it was stated: “Transfers 30% of Ways and Means profits to Educational Grant Account at the end of the Fiscal year.” With many changes through out the years, now is a good time to discuss as a chapter our vision and how we would like funds distributed from fund raising events.

It is with sadness that I let you know that Jane Fulton-Junge passed away.  Her memorial service was September 21st at the Wheat Ridge United Methodist Church. Please keep her family in your thoughts.  Thank you Kathy Doughy for sending flowers on behalf of the chapter.

Our next DAORN Chapter meeting will be Thursday October 8th at St. Anthony’s Hospital, social hour and dinner starts at 5:45 pm.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you next week.

Faith Beazer, DAORN President
