July starts with a bang! On this day, July 2nd, in 1964, Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the historic Civil Rights Act into law. Sunday, July 4th, we celebrate 245 years of freedom and independence. And July 7th marks 40 years since the first woman was sworn into the Supreme Court. So much history to be proud of and celebrate.
The month of July is about being outdoors, family vacations and fun. It is National Parks and Recreation Month, National Grilling Month, and National Picnic Month. If that is not enough, it also National Blueberry, Watermelon, and Hot Dog Months! So, pack up your hot dogs, buns, blueberries and watermelon and head to a national park, historic site, or museum. Remember your President’s Project Scavenger Hunt list and enjoy a picnic with family and friends along the way. A great done in day project to savor all the best of summer.
This summer we have the opportunity for in-person service projects. GFWC-NC Summer of Service project ideas have been posted on our web site under the community service tab: Summer of Service 2021. Many clubs like to take time off too, so these projects and programs can be easily organized, done in a day, and meet many needs in our local communities. Simple projects can have great impact, so be sure to share them with us. #Summerofservice
Enjoy your summer and re-charge your batteries for the fall. We are working on the plans for the GFWC-NC fall meeting and CCWC. After many months of zoom, we look forward to seeing you!
Wishing you safe travels, fun, and adventure!
