PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE

Won’t we have lots to talk about at our November meeting? By the time we
meet we will have attended our first district fundraising auction. Reservations
are going well. I thank you for your participation. And many thanks to Alison
Wessler and Jean Marsh for making it the success I know it will be. We’ll also
have attended the Area D conference and, oh yes, we’ll have a new president to
talk about. I hope you’ve all taken the time to read the materials on the different
propositions we are being asked to vote on.

Our featured speaker at the November Council meeting will be the Honorable
                              Marjorie Laird Carter, a superior court judge who
                              specializes on probate issues, a topic important to
                              each of us.

                               Please don’t forget the report writing workshop for presidents and deans
                               November 21 at the Woman’s Club of Orange, 10:00 AM.

1ST VICE PRESIDENT (DEAN) - mARILYN bENNETT

The joyful season is quickly approaching…Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Years…and in the
midst of it all, there’s report writing.

A report writing workshop for club presidents and deans will be Friday, November 21st, 10:00 a.m., at
the Woman’s Club of Orange, 121 S. Center Street, Orange. Complete instructions on report writing,
changes to the Report Form and suggestions to help your report writing will be explained. Club
presidents and deans…mark you calendars and plan to attend.

Begin now to gather your statistics. You may need to contact previous chairmen or project leaders
and committees. Remember, the reports you will be writing cover the work your club has done from
January 1st until December 31st of this year.




2ND VICE PRESIDENT (MEMBERSHIP) - MARIA STERK

                        Four More Would Be Great in October ’08

By the time you receive this newsletter your clubs have had an opportunity to campaign for members
during any and all the events that took place in your club during the month of October. . .

I will be contacting your membership chairmen before the District Council Meeting in November to find
out what yours successes or failures were. (Remember failures are learning tools.) If you did not send
me contact information for your membership chairman, I will call the club presidents for the information.

At the District Council Meeting you will receive two postcards that you will fill out before December
listing all new members (names only) to your club since the Data Blanks were sent in June. You will
mail the cards to GFWC and to our Area D Vice-President. Your new club members will be listed in the
GFWC Clubwoman magazine.

So, even if you did not make the “Four More Would Be Great in October ’08” goal, don’t give up the
ship, yet. Pull every Magic Trick in the Book” and try to add names to the postcard before December
and then mail it in.

Once again remember we will be having a District Membership Event ….. “A Brew of Membership
Magic”, on February 17, 2009. Mark your calendars and tell your new members to save the date… that
this is a time to celebrate their becoming members of Federation.




3RD VICE PRESIDENT (FUND RAISING) - JEAN MARSH

Our VIEJAS CASINO TRIP is scheduled for WEDNESDAY JANUARY 28, 2009. Sit back and relax.

District Website

How wonderful to have had a visitor attend the District auction at Anaheim Ebell! She learned of it from
our website and may soon be visiting a club in her area!

You too might have upcoming events and news items from your clubs showcased, but first we have to
actually receive that information.

I realize that it’s one more thing for you to have to think about, so here’s a possible solution. Add my
name to your newsletter mailing list, I will select things I think our District members would
find interesting. Of course, you may ALWAYS email me and suggest an item.

We’re also interested in any flyers you might have for upcoming events. If sent as a .pdf
file, they may be attached online. And remember, we need photos. Lots of photos! Send to
fphelps24@eathlink.net OR 2343 Northumberland Rd., Orange 92865.

No promises about what will be used, but any and all WILL be considered. Thank you!

Frances Phelps



 Five things          you never knew your cell phone could do

 If you have a cell phone, this should be printed and kept in your car, purse or wallet. Your mobile phone can actu-
 ally be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

 1. Emergency ~ The emergency number worldwide for mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage
 area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network
 to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is
 locked. Try it out.
 2. If You Locked Your Keys in the Car ~ Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy
 someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call
 someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door
 and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car
 will unlock. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the
 other “remote” for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
 3. Hidden Battery Power ~ If your cell battery is very low, activate hidden battery power by pressing the keys
 *3370# — your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.
 This reserve will get recharged when you recharge your cell phone next time. (Just don’t forget to recharge ASAP!)
 4. Disabling a Stolen Mobile Phone ~ To check your mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits
 on your phone: *#06# — a 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it
 down and keep it somewhere safe. If you phone is stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this
 code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be
 totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it
 either. If everybody did this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
 5. Free Directory Service for Cells ~ Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411
 information calls when they don’t have to. When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial:
 (800)FREE411 or (800)373-3411 without incurring any charge. Program this into your cell phone now.
                                                                                               Page 7

                             CFWC FOCUS ON HEALTH

                               Something you can do right now!

                                Healthy Food that Tastes Good
                         (This should not be a contradiction in terms.)

We hear so often about healthy foods and recipes. Many are less than acceptable in taste and
quality. However, I will bet that most of us have found at least one good recipe which does taste
good and is also healthy. Not simply a fruit or vegetable salad (which is always
a good idea) but something you actually prepare - Mix? Bake? Combine? Sim-
mer? Something you’ve sampled and exclaimed, “Wow, this healthy? I can’t
believe it.”

                            Test Questions? *Is it healthy? *Is it easy and
                            completed in a short time? *Does it taste
                            GOOD?

                           Would you send me the recipe
                           please?! I would like to have them
                           as soon as possible.
