From the Desk of Our National President:
Cynthia M. Maleski
Dear fellow branch officers and members,
As we approach the 42nd Quadrennial Convention in October of this year in Tampa, Florida, we are in the midst of advance convention planning. The board of directors approved committee appointments at its June board meeting. Once the Credentials Committee meets to credential the delegates, we are able to conduct advance committee work in the home office and I will issue the official Call to the convention.
On July 26th, we will celebrate the Feast Day of St. Ann, our Patroness, mother of the Blessed Mother and grandmother of Jesus. It is a perfect day to attend Mass as a group and plan a little celebration in her honor!
On July 4th, Independence Day, we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, a document declaring the independence of our original 13 colonies from Great Britain in 1776. Let us celebrate with family and friends, have a picnic, and display our American flag outside our home. Don't forget to enjoy the fireworks as well!
FCSLA National Office Celebrates Flag Day
June 14, 2019
It was a little chilly for this time of year, but the sun was out (something we have not seen much of lately) and a beautiful blue sky overhead made a great background to celebrate Flag Day! The staff was dressed in red, white, and blue. They met outside to honor the American Flag by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the National Anthem led by FCSLA National President Cynthia M. Maleski. The city of Beachwood Mayor Martin S. Horwitz presented a City of Beachwood Proclamation Flag Day 2019 to National President Cynthia M. Maleski. There were representatives present from the Beachwood Police and Fire Departments, as well. Afterwards, everyone met inside the office for strawberries, blueberries, shortcake, and cool whip.
