Leda’s professional title is “Independent Representative at Talk Fusion”, which specializes in “RTC”, real time communication, with a worldwide audience.  Leda presented our group with a very informative video that showed exactly how “RTC” actually works to grow your business and help you network not only on a local level, but nationally and worldwide.  Her passion for what she does just shines and is very contagious!  We thank Leda for her presentation and look forward to having her back.

Also, please help me thank Leda for joining our Board of Directors a couple of months ago!  “Always go for the standing ovation” is one of Leda’s mottos, and it surely portrayed the infectious mood she exudes in everything she does.  We had a full house, 20 women attended, it was one of the best attended meetings we’ve ever hadJ!

 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.

We owe a huge “thank you” to Ken Davidson for taking pictures at our meeting!  Job well done!  Thank you all for attending!  We look forward to seeing you all again on September 16th!

Our door prizes were raffled off at the end of our meeting to the lucky winners!  On our 50/50 raffle, where members and guests buy raffle tickets to split the amount of monies collected, NAPW Ocala Chapter keeps half the proceeds, the lucky winner keeps the other half we collected $45!  Patti Riccardo was the lucky ticket winner, and donated her part of the winnings back to the club!  Thank you Patti!

Please help me thank Dr. Barbara Brooks, who furnishes our door prizes, which we pay for to help her R.A.M.A.L. organization each month.  Networking first and foremost ladiesJ!  Even better, we are helping Dr. Brooks’s local charity projects.
