EWI Harrisburg

President’s Message - I hope everyone enjoyed the Labor Day weekend!  It is hard to believe that summer is winding down and fall is at our heels!
Summer is always tough with schedules and our monthly meetings. I am looking
forward to seeing everyone at our September 13th meeting for a chance to reconnect.
A recap of the summer months: June was our ASIST scholarship presentation and we were fortunate to have one of the three recipients in attendance, who shared her journey, what the scholarship means to her and her hopes for the future! Meeting the ASIST scholarship recipients always makes for an inspiring evening! At July’s meeting we took some bets on who was the best EWI bowler as teams competed in Vision Resources of Central PA’s Vision Bowl for a night of fundraising and fun! We raised awareness for vision impairments with some friendly rivalry. The last game of the night, we bowled while wearing special glasses that simulated impairments such as glaucoma. It is always rewarding to support a member firm! August was our second business meeting of the year. There was some good discussion among membership, including sustaining and lifetime, of our chapter plans for 2018-2019. We will build upon that foundation during our next meeting on September 13th! Looking forward to a strong turnout!
Finally, we can’t forget LCAM is this month! Lynn Burkholder and Sylvia Weinstein are representing our chapter this year. Lynn is a first timer and I am very excited for her to connect and experience those couple of days with fellow leaders! We wish you both safe travels and lots of fun - we heard there is an 80’s themed party, get your leg warmers and neon packed!
See you all soon and stay cool as our Indian summer kicks in!
Sincerely, Julie Young, Capital BlueCross, Chapter President, 2017-2018
