President's Letters

Dear Dames, 

Wishing you and your families the merriest of holidays and good health and happiness in the new year!

In addition to all the other festivities we celebrate in December, it’s the month in which we commemorate our founder Carol Brock’s birthday. This year Carol is 96 years young. What better way to show gratitude for all she has done for our organization than by making a donation to the Carol Brock Scholarship? Nothing would make Carol happier and it’s a great way to give back as 2019 comes to a close.  It’s easy to contribute by filling out the Donation Form on our website.  

I know that right now you’re all busy shopping, gift wrapping, cookie baking, and partying but why not take a minute to take advantage of the early bird pricing for The Next Big Sip on January 21? And while you’re at it, consider picking up a ticket or two to give as a gift to the wine lovers on your list.

It has been an honor to lead and represent LDNY and further its mission for the last year. But it has also been a joy to get to know and work with all of you. Our support for and friendship with each other is among the biggest rewards of being a Dame. I’m looking forward to another gratifying year.
