September President’s Message
I hope everyone enjoyed the summer and the good weather although it was not as warm as usual. On July 27th several WEN poets had the opportunity to read their work at the Eighth Annual International Poetry Reading of the Women’s Federation for World Peace Canada. It was a real pleasure to be inspired by the spoken word. I would like to thank Zohra Zoberi and Lilly Tadin for the invite. Our next meeting is Saturday, September 20th and our speaker is Anita Sechesky, a best selling author and life coach. The topic will be “Are you really living without limitations?”
