The 2018-2020 administration didn’t end quite like we all planned. No state convention. No in-person International convention. No thank you to outgoing officers and welcoming of the new ones. That doesn’t mean, however, that we didn’t have great appreciation and admiration for our outgoing president, Joan Maddox. As far as I know, Joan didn’t miss a single big event for our clubs, districts or international organization. I don’t know how many miles she drove or events she and Fred attended, but it was greatly appreciated by our entire state federation.
2020-2022 State President, Carroll Craun met with Joan last week and presented her with her State President’s Pin that she will keep and also a cash gift from our clubs that was collected during district meetings last year. The officer team sent thank you cards to Joan earlier in the week. It wasn’t the best thank you. It wasn’t the thank you we all had planned, but it was certainly heartfelt. THANK YOU, JOAN, for all you’ve done for GFWC Oklahoma!
