7th WFA DISTRICT 2010-2011 Report
The new approach to District 7 is “divide and conquer”. We are bordered by the Mississippi River; six states; Canada; four of the Great Lakes, and divided by two of the Lakes and the Straits of Mackinac. It’s time to embrace the geography of the district!
The approach is to divide the district into areas hopefully reachable by the over 70 WFA members. Cousin Barbara Aslakson has contacted members in her state of Minnesota as well as those living in Wisconsin. Janice Mick has been approached to reach out to northern Michigan, and I’m connecting to central/southern Michigan as well as contacting the entire district.
The economy and life changes also define the district. Reunions are hoped for goals but may not be always attainable in the future. Thus, addresses of members are important. All should have received a directory for the district, with a listing of email addresses in the plans for future. Creating a membership list isn’t always easy, so I ask that any new members (and long-time ones) of District 7 get in touch with me if there are errors, and so we can also become better acquainted--—
