Elected Women’s Lunch on May 1 2020

Dear MWPAC Members and friends,

We regret to announce that the MWPAC Elected Women’s Luncheon, originally scheduled for Friday, March 20, has been postponed until Friday, May 1, 2020, due to warnings about the Coronavirus epidemic. We felt that it would be prudent to protect our members, friends, speakers and guests from the risk of Coronavirus exposure that can occur when a large group of people gather together. We ask that those who have already paid for their luncheons check their calendars to see if they can attend the Elected Women’s Luncheon on May 1, at the Club at McInnis at 11:30 a.m.

If this date does not work for you, we will honor your request for a refund-contact bmatas8139@aol.com.We ask you to consider donating your ticket purchase. Your donation advances our mission in Marin to encourage and support women and girls who have stepped forward to serve their community through an elected office.

The success of our organization depends on your support and participation. We are grateful for your patience during these times and look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Sincerely, The MWPAC Board: Gina, Barbara, Dotty, Tammi, Michele, Stephanie, Vicki, Cathryn, Frieda and Carol
