meeting mem b e r s =
s you all know by now, our theme “Meeting
You Where You Are” applies in many con-
texts to our League efforts – to reach out
message from the
to our members, to reach out to this com-
munity and meet their needs. I am always
heartened by what a difference it makes to sit down and
chat about League issues over dinner, coffee, or a confer-
ence table. Get a few members together, innovation hap-
pens! Based on the fantastic response to our new Mentoring
Members program, our members want connection, a fellow
member and a friend with whom they can discuss League
concerns and ideas. In fact, Mentoring Members now boasts
participation of 25% of our active and provisional combined
membership. Thank you to each one of you who are partici-
pating and meeting fellow members where they are. Ideas,
growth, and innovation are sure to follow with these new
connections in League.
Another new development is the Members Connect eN-
ewsletter that was rolled out on October 4, 2011. The eN-
ewsletter will no doubt evolve and grow as a membership
tool, but the 2011-12 board’s desire is to provide a members-
only newsletter to address League questions, concerns, up-
dates, survey feedback results, and other issues responsive
to our membership’s growing needs.
Our projects are off to a great start, and our November
meeting will highlight our Kids in the Kitchen project (also a
national Junior League project). Kids in the Kitchen, under the direction of
April Lindsay, is planning fun, informative, nutrition-focused activities for
local schools and the continuation of the community garden at the Fam-
ily Resource Center. We look forward to November’s meeting to highlight
the Kids in the Kitchen project, its success in the community, and our
hard-working KITK volunteers.
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-
resent your League. Please know how diligently and carefully they work
to guide this fantastic organization to continue to be a catalyst for posi-
tive change in our community and to assist families, women, and children
who need our help. As I sat there and listened to board members plan
for our League’s future through the creation of the Junior League of Beau-
mont Julie Richardson Procter Scholarship Endowment to benefit young
women pursuing a college education, I remembered a conversation with
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-
ment to voluntarism. “They,” our community, deserve it. The kids at Fam-
ily Resource Center deserve it, the kids at Baptist Hospital deserve it, the
teenagers at CASA about to embark on a new life deserve it, the benefi-
ciaries of the local soup kitchen where Done in a Day members volunteer
deserve it, the children learning lessons from the Beaumont Children’s
Museum Stuffee and Lego exhibits deserve it, and local children deserve
to receive the Kids in the Kitchen message on nutrition and wise food
choices. They deserve it. Indeed.
Thank you for reaching out and
meeting this community’s needs,

September Community Builder Award
This month’s Community Builder Award goes to Julia Matheny. As Chair of Exhibitors for Main Street Market,
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.
