Debbie Sampson
1st Vice President, Philanthropy
This is my 10th year as a member of this fabulous organization. Being an Officer is a great way to contribute to the group. I have served as an officer for 8 years, as President, Ways and Means, Corresponding Secretary, Membership Officer, Recording Secretary, and last year as Co-President. I have also Co-chaired 4 Spring Events, and 2 fall events. This year I am 1st VP of Philanthropy and I look forward to working closely with our charities and building on the partnerships that we have with them.
We had a record year last year and we able to give significant funds to 14 charities. As Philanthropy chair, I’m hoping that we can continue this upward trend and be able to fully fund their requests this year, as it really makes a difference to so many local children and their families, and to local environmental charities. 
As well as working hard, we know how to have fun too. If you are reading this and are vaguely interested in joining us, please reach out to us, you won’t regret it! I haven’t!
