WRR meets the second Monday of every month at the
Golden Hill Health Center - 7 PM
MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND HAVING FUN DOING IT
Women Redefining Retirement is delighted to welcome Mary Ann Stroup to speak about the Kenya Help Initiative Days for Girls, an organization which provides sustainable feminine hygiene kits to young girls in Kenya. By providing these kits, girls are able to stay in school and gain dignity, respect, and the opportunity to earn a livelihood. Thanks to many of our own WRR memberswho have sewn hundreds of these kits, we are helping to change lives!
In November we will be celebrating our birthday with a fun "sock hop".
Refreshments and Friendship are always available.
For October, the Action Committee will be collecting items to help battle the upcoming cold weather. Please bring hats, scarves, gloves, coats, sweaters, mittens and other cold weather articles of clothing to be distributed to the Bridgeport Rescue Center!
Next month's Action Committee project will be collecting Thanksgiving foods to go into baskets for needy families.
