“SAYING GOOD BYE…”
It is with heavy hearts we inform you that after more than 35 years the November event will be the last meeting of the Womens Focus Group. The final decision to discontinue the organization’s affairs was made by the Board of Directors and voted by majority of the members on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.
FOCUS was organized for “women actively engaged at a management level” in a business or profession. For almost 40 years this organization has offered programs of educational value and interest, promoting friendship among its members and celebrating professional women. Over the years FOCUS became one of the premier professional women’s networking organization in Ozaukee County.
Each year Women’s Focus awarded up to $2,000 for scholarships through the Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). Each scholarship of $1,000.00 per semester was awarded to an outstanding, female student seeking a degree at MATC. In appreciation of our monthly speakers, Women’s Focus also made donations to many organizations in the area, Boys & Girls Club of Milwaukee, Camp Hometown Heroes, Metro Milwaukee Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ozaukee Humane Society, United Way of Northern Ozaukee and Kathy’s House, just to name a few.
We want to thank the founders of this organization – Susie Son, Lee TeSelle and Carol Ann Schneider and many other great women for their hard work and dedication. You’ve been an inspiration to all of us!
We came together for the final time on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 and celebrated the story of an organization that brought together many wonderful women and helped created friendships that will last a lifetime. It was wonderful to see so many of the our current and past members and hear how our lives have and continue to evolve.
