November 13 Branch Program – speaker Shari Rothenberg

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 6 p.m. Celebrating the Season – the hospitality committee will organize homemade goodies to brighten the evening. Speaker: Shari Rothenberg

Shari Riva Rothenberg will share how staying true to oneself and keeping balance in one’s life are important if one is to be “A Woman on a Mission – Building Bridges and Breaking Barriers”. Through her experiences in the corporate world, office manager at the Greensboro Children’s  Museum, choosing to take on a life-changing decision to back to college to earn a teaching degree (a great way to positively impact our future generation in so many ways), and now a teacher – Shari will share how she transitioned to be the person she is today. Deciding that being physically fit would be important to her success, she challenges herself to doing just that.   As a modern woman of the Jewish faith, she found that going back to her roots added peace to her busy life. She has also become a community activist advocating for her students and her community. She will share her humbling yet empowering experience of when she recently spent the day in Raleigh along with 30,000 other educators and was part of the Rally for Respect, a movement that made history.  She accepted a challenge to learn classical guitar well enough to be a member of the Piedmont Classical Guitar Society and recently returned from playing at the international world-famous Concert Hall in downtown Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. She has also agreed to play some classical guitar for us!

Our members will also have the opportunity to hear from our 3 NCCWSL attendees. They will make a brief presentation to share ideas and skills gained at  NCCWSL and describe their plans for doing something related to those ideas and skills on their home campus during the Fall Semester, 2018. This should be quite interesting!

Tuesday November 6 ELECTION DAY!!

VOTER LOOKUP

This important mid-term election will decide the makeup of the US House of Representatives. Members are elected every two years. Local incumbent House members are Ted Budd of the 13th District and Mark Walker of District 6. To check to see which district you live in, and to print out your SAMPLE BALLOT, click on the Voter Lookup link above.

In North Carolina there are six amendments to the state constitution on the ballot. If this seems excessive, you are correct! Our current NC Constitution is comprised of a Preamble and 14 Articles each of which has several sections. Be informed. If the new amendments being offered on the ballot do not provide a clear benefit to you and other North Carolinians, we must vote AGAINST.

In the local area, many of you may be part of a shake up in precinct or district lines which will cause you to have to vote at a different location or to vote in a race that you may not have experienced before. Lines are being redrawn for NC State Senate Districts 27 and 28, currently occupied by Trudy Wade and Gladys Robinson, are redrawn slightly.
