Can PhonesAs Red Lodge sprouts into our second year, we ask ourselves: "How can we simplify, while keeping in touch with our members and subscribers?" Voila! This March issue of eNEWS is short and sweet-setting the new tempo for monthly issues that come in-between quarterly eNEWS (which will continue to be rich with articles, recipes, and beautiful photos). A warm thank you to Drai, our graphics goddess who designed the layout, to Pamela Delilah for proofreading and to Marsha, who uploaded all your e-mail addresses onto this privacy-protected website (no need to hit the join-our-list button on the right if you are already an eNEWS subscriber). Feel free to forward this to friends who might also like to know about our upcoming events. 
Are you inspired to help Red Lodge communicate with our community and the general public through eNEWS and the website?

Communications Council Chair is currently an open position on the WWRL Board. Collaborating with council members (Drai, Norleen, Marsha, Valli, Amy Seawolf), the chair coordinates council meetings and oversees promotion, publicity, and marketing for WWRL programs, membership and fundraising drives. At year's end, the Chair facilitates an evaluation of the council's work, and the drafting of council objectives and budget for 2009.

Serving on the board requires a commitment to attend board meetings and conference calls, to hold the bowl for the Red Lodge vision and evolving goals and to roll-up-your-sleeves for nitty-gritty tasks. Board service hones personal and organizational skills and is a great opportunity for fun, friendship and deep connection with an extraordinary group of women.

If you are interested, please email If a lightbulb goes on and you think of someone whose gifts and talents may be perfect for this position, please take action. Call her out with encouragement or send us a line. The deadline is April 10. WWRL Board has agreed that if a council chair position remains open for more than two months, the council will take a sabbatical until the next regular nominations process reveals a new chair. In the interim,the board assumes responsibility to prioritize and delegate this council's workload.

Photos or very brief paragraphs with WWRL news are welcome and the deadline is the 20th of the month preceding JAN, MAR, MAY, JUNE, JULY, OCT and DEC. Send submissions to:

Warm Wishes for a Growing Spring!
