Summer Pools Program
WOW! It has been a long time since I posted anything on the blog -- that's because I have been so busy doing so many exciting things!
Three weeks ago Felicia Riffelmacher, 2nd VP on the Board and I attended the Girls Inc National Conference in Washington DC. It was a great opportunity for us to participate in conversations with other CEOs and Board members from affiliates across the country. All of us celebrated and bid farewell to Joyce Roche, our outgoing National CEO and welcomed Judy Vredenburgh, the new CEO. We also spent a day on Capitol Hill.
January: A Month of Planning and Doing!
Happy 2010! At Girls Inc of Worcester we are bringing the new year in by moving forward with our strategic planning process and updating the look of our Providence Street building with new windows in the Fuller Aquatics Center.
The snows of a New England Winter can get some people down, but not us! This month we have put the new windows in the pool area - partially funded by a grant from the United Way of Central MA. The new glass block windows brighten the room and are a great addition - inside and out!
After spending my one week vacation driving to California, I have jumped right back into the wonderful world of Girls Inc.

Through the City Manager's office, Community Based Organizations will be able to coordinate swim times for their members through this program, with possibleJune 12, 2009

Thursday afternoon, June 11, over 150 friends - old and new - gathered at Girls Inc's Winthrop House for a CELEBRATION event. We honored Dr. Jean King and Linda Cavaioli as our 2009 Advocates for Girls, dedicated The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation Aquatics Center and unveiled the beautiful Giving Tree mural, handcrafted for us by Jennifer Paradee.
