Hello Ladies,

Please see the NAPW Ocala Chapter Meeting Minutes for our March, 26th, 2014 meeting:

Chapter Name/President’s Name:  NAPW OCALA CHAPTER, President Lisa Wyatt.

Title of Meeting and Speakers:  NAPW OCALA Chapter March Meeting; Speaker Shelley Smith from MID-FLA Heating and Air serving Ocala, Gainesville, Alachua, Starke, Ponte Vedra and Saint Augustine areas.

Date and Location:  March 26, 2014 at the Ocala Elks Lodge #286, 702 NE 25th Avenue, Ocala, FL  34470, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

Highlights:  Networking began at 6:30 as those in attendance shared their businesses and passions.  President Lisa Wyatt started the meeting around 7pm, with introductions from all in attendance. Each month members are encouraged to bring guests to participate in our networking. 

Also, at each meeting, we are looking to start gathering toothbrushes/toothpaste, stuffed animals, etc. for the stockings and gifts for the “Chosen Children’s Christmas Party”.  We have on hand so far 40 roll on soaps and chap sticks to put in the children’s Christmas Stockings.  Please remember to bring these items and/or toiletries for the Arnette House and place them in the purple basket for distribution and storage for the good deeds we do for our community.

Speaker Shelley Smith from MID-FLA Heating and Air serving Ocala, Gainesville, Alachua, Starke, Ponte Vedra and Saint Augustine areas, gave a very educational presentation on the importance of clean and energy efficient duck work.  Shelley gave insightful tips for high utility bills, stuffy rooms, dusty houses and just how necessary it is to have proper duct sealing and cleaning.  Leaky ducts are costing you more than you think.  Lower your utility bills and improve your home’s comfort with Aeroseals’ patented technology.  Offered exclusively by Mid-Fla Heating & Air, this process will seal the areas where our cool air is escaping, saving you money. 

Duct cleaning is very necessary as dirty air ducts are a major source of indoor air pollution.  Your duct system functions as the respiratory system of your home.  Dust, dust mites, dirt, pollen, human and animal dander and other airborne particles are pulled into your ducts as your air conditioner or furnace runs.  These contaminants build up and become a breeding ground for mold, mildew and other micro-organisms. 

Shelley held our attention and taught us so much we never even think about concerning the indoor air quality of our homes.  You can reach Shelley Smith at 352-351-1240 to answer questions about heating/air conditioning service and repairs, replacements, installations, indoor air quality, duct cleanings, home energy audits and/or to speak to your group about how to save money on your electric bills.   Thank you Shelley for such a great presentation!

On another front, Sue Bruzdziak invited our NAPW Chapter to participate in the upcoming “Love Ocala” launch party on May 3rd, at 506 S. Pine Ave from 1pm to 3:30 pm, which is an event where all proceeds are going to the “Ocala Outreach Foundation”.   Sue is sending me more detailed information that I will pass along to members.  The NAPW Ocala Chapter thanks her immensely for her cupcake donations at our 1st Chosen Children’s Christmas PartyJ!  We are welcoming her with open arms to join our organizationJ!

We were also honored to help Jane Moerlie announce that she is running for School Board District 3.  We passed out “Candidate Petition” forms for those who wish to support Jane to fill out to help her in her new venture.  Good luck Jane!

Dr. Barbara Brooks attended our March NAPW meeting to present our NAPW Chapter with an “Appreciation Award” plaque in recognition for our contributions and support to her R.A.M.A.L. “Reach, Aim, Motivate and Lead” non-profit organization.  Dr. Brooks has been a strong supporter of the Ocala NAPW chapter since its beginning, and we have had a very close relationship with her organization.  It is through Dr. Brooks and  R.A.M.A.L. that we were able to do our “Thanksgiving Basket Give Aways” and a viable part of our “Chosen Children’s Christmas Party”.  Thank you Dr. Brooks for being such a rock to our NAPW Ocala ChapterJ!  And thank you for the beautiful plaque!  We will display it at every meeting with pride!

Member Attendance:  Those in attendance were:  President Lisa Wyatt, Board Member Jane Moerlie, Board Member Vickie Kayuk, NAPW Members Dr. Barbara Brooks, Jacki Farrar, and Sally Pollock, and guests Sue Bruzdziak, Patti Riccardo, Lydia Dice, Cole Jackson, Judy Ruland, Judy Sterling and Leda Perez-Castillo, and Speaker Shelley Smith of MID-FLA Heating and Air.  We had a great crowd and wonderful meeting!  The vibe was exciting, the networking was just a buzzing and a good wholesome welcoming feeling for all in attendance was felt by all!  Each meeting seems to be getting better than the one before! 

If you are not a regular, may I whole heartedly inspire you to come to our next meeting on April 23rd!  It’s a great night out to spend with your sister professionals!  Bring a guest with you to experience the NAPW Ocala Chapter meetings! The door prizes were a pink and a black (NAPW colors) flower arrangements, a “DREAM” candle holder, a porcelain bunny rabbit for Easter, and a sweet wall plaque “The longer I live, the more I enjoy life”! Everyone was very excited to win a door prize!  We also held our monthly “50/50” raffle, which helps to fund our charitable events throughout the year, specifically our “Chosen Children’s Christmas Party”.  The results from this month’s raffle was $45, $23 to our fund, and $22 to winner Judy Sterling, Vickie Kayuk’s guest, and she graciously turned over her winnings back to our NAPW Chapter funds, leaving our “Chosen Children’s Christmas Party Funds for 2014” balance up to $177 so far for this year!  The raffle tickets sell 3 tickets for $5 and 8 tickets for $10, so bring some extra cash to see if you can be the lucky winner each month!

Our April 2014 meeting will be held  Wednesday, April 23rd, at the Ocala Elks Lodge #286, 702 NE 25th Avenue, Ocala, FL  34470 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.  Please RSVP to President Lisa Wyatt so she will know how many places to prepare for.  Jane Moerlie – Candidate for District 3 School Board will be our speaker.

Respectfully submitted by President Lisa Wyatt, March 30, 2014.
