Greetings to From Our Hearts supporters

To the editor:

Let me start off by introducing the 2017/2018 Board of Directors. Yours truly (Barb Riordan) was elected as president. I am also remaining as treasurer and will have the financials audited every month by our new vice president, Dee Hanks. Dona Wells has stepped in as secretary. Mary Scott has agreed to stay as a board member along with Patricia Downing, Julie Herder, Kris Hornsby and Terri James. We have recruited some new members who we hope will also agree to join the board. (We only have seven meetings per year so it's not a huge commitment.)

We are still working on our meeting schedule for 2017/2018 and are looking to restructure the membership and fiscal years so they are the same as a calendar year. That way we have elections when people are actually here! Please think about joining us. Our meetings are only an hour to an hour and a half and we hope to have them where you can get something to eat, or drink (adult beverage is an option).

Due to Hurricane Irma we were unable to meet with the Beacon of HOPE or Cancer Alliance of Naples to map out a grant agreement that would offer non-medical support to those islanders already covered under our Lee Health grant fighting breast cancer so stay tuned for that. We are also canceling any OctoberBreast related activities since we do not feel right about asking people for donations right now and Miceli's has already been so generous in donating thousands of dollars in meals. We will be ramping up our BreastFest planning as soon as board members return. The plan is to have another Karaoke Contest as part of the event. More details will be coming in the near future.

Thanks for all your support and hope to see you all soon. We're starting to see our seasonal friends already!

Barb Riordan
