                                          As I sit here and write this letter, I have just adjourned our October
                                       board meeting. I am inspired by your 2011-12 board members who rep-

                                       who need our help. As I sat there and listened to board members plan

                                       Julie last year. We were concluding one of our lunch planning sessions,
                                       and she looked at me and simply stated: “Make a difference, Ronda.
                                       They deserve it. Focus on pushing this League to new levels.”
                                          To you, I say take Julie’s words to heart. Press on with your commit-

                                                           she has been an incredible resource to her committee. She’s extremely organized, efficient and communicates
                                                           well. She works hard to be fair with the vendors and is trying to organize the Market where there is a diverse
                                                           selection of vendors that make the Market interesting. She has also been very generous in giving legal advice
                                                           and support to the League. Hats off to you, Julia!

                     October Globetrotter Award
                       This month’s Globetrotter Award goes to Mandy Oliverio. As the editor of our League magazine, Spinnings,
                     Mandy Oliverio deserves this month’s presidential award. Mandy not only oversees the creation and delivery
                     of our League publication every. single. month. from September to May, but she produces a professional, top-
                     quality product that functions as one of our League’s best marketing and outreach tools. On top of her vital role
                     as editor, Mandy also opted to serve as a mentor this year in our new Mentoring Members Program. As one can
                     imagine, organizing Spinnings each month requires continuous collaboration with her committee members and
                     others in League to submit articles, photos, and information in a timely fashion. Mandy does this with focus,
                     diplomacy, and grace. For which this President is thankful! Thank you, Mandy, for promoting our League, via
                     Spinnings and our new electronic publication option, across the globe! We appreciate you.
