A Message from the President
UFC has grown from a small group of 25 women to over 500 members. The involvement and support of so many members have made it possible to increase the number of programs offered, and to grow our Scholarship Fund. The past two years have been very challenging as we maneuvered through the COVID pandemic. Hopefully, we will see a more normal year where we can be together again to celebrate and build upon our 109 years of friendship, enrichment, and scholarships.
So, what does this year have in store for us? Interest Section signups will be combined with the Newcomers Welcome on September 29, so that we can meet new members and greet old friends before exploring section offerings. This will also be a good time to renew memberships for 2022 - 2023. The Fall Welcome and Scholarship Reception will be held on October 27. The Scholarship Committee will be presenting scholarships to 11 UC Davis students and two Yolo County high school seniors. Do not miss this chance to hear from these outstanding recipients. As usual, the Newcomers and Program Committees have been hard at work putting together speakers, classes, tours, and other interesting opportunities to learn and have fun!
This year we participated in Big Day of Giving for the first time, and will do so again next year. We are fortunate to have so many talented members from a variety of backgrounds and will be looking for volunteers who are interested in fundraising, marketing, or simply in getting involved. Please consider supporting our scholarship goals.
We appreciate each and every one of you and hope that you continue to benefit from being part of this wonderful organization. Please reach out to new members to make them feel included. On behalf of the UFC Board and committee chairs, we wish you a great year ahead. Do not hesitate to reach out to any of us with thoughts, suggestions, and ideas that can make us even better as an organization.
Pat Stromberg, UFC President, 2022 – 2023
