“CFWC Keeping Up With The Times"
California Federation of Women's Clubs
Prevention, Protection , Partnerships. . . Our emphasis is on child safety and health these next two years. We'll cover many projects both those already in place and new; building fresh interests and ideas. For instance, General Federation has already listed new safetly concerns for children using telephones which include the ever popular games. Over indulgence of these items has become a deprivation of normal sleep patterns thus possibly interferring with school performance. Our partnerships with March of Dimes and St. Jude's has brought awareness to babies and cancer. Another issue for health concerns is juvenile diabetes. It is on the increase. We will continue to research and suggest projects that will bring awareness. Don't hesitate to send me information on some of your projects that we can share.

“It's worth making time to find the things that really stir your soul. That’s what makes you really feel alive. You have to say ‘no’ to other things you’re used to, and do it with all your heart.”
