Pres. PAWC

Hi Ladies

Hope you are all doing well. This is another Reminder about PAWC dues for the coming year.

As Michelle advised in her email, we have decided to extend the deadline for dues to the end of June.

Congratulations to our newly elected board.

We all hope that the coming year will have us back attending luncheons and events and raising money for our wonderful charities.

Your $40 dues check also goes 100% to our charities and is 100% tax deductible.

We need to get your dues by the deadline so that we can prepare the new PAWC Directory. Please take a look at your directory entry and make sure the information is correct. Advise me of any changes so that I can update the master spreadsheet that will be used for the new directory.

Please mail your check made out to PAWC to:

Susan Pulver
5305 Creekside Trail
Sarasota FL 34243

You can put a note with directory changes in with your check. Or email me at

You can also call or text to my cell phone 412-596-2709

I greatly appreciate your response.


Dear Palm Aire Women’s Club Members,

We are going to do something different and exciting for this Friday, May 8th’s meeting - we are doing it virtually! Thank you to our Ways & Means Chair, Debi Frock, for setting up, the link is below. If you connect on computer you will be able to see the many faces of our PAWC family that we have missed so much. You can also connect on a "smart phone" or just dialing in.

This is a very special meeting. We are acknowledging the charities that we are supporting this year. Thank you to Peg Beck for chairing the Charity Committee. And, we are installing our new 2020/2021 officers:

  • Carolanne Garafola, President
  • Mary Beth Rempp, Vice President
  • Susan Romine, Recording Secretary
  • Ivonne Cardona, Treasurer
  • Kim Lege, Corresponding Secretary

Thank you to Carol Darling for chairing the Nominating Committee. With the Zoom, you will be able to follow the installation of these ladies into leadership for the PAWC! The link will also be included on our PAWC Facebook page:

It has been my honor to serve as your president this year! I’ve enjoy getting to know everyone and support our mission through fun, fundraisers. Even with the challenges of the COVID19, we are fulling our mission with scholarships and assisting local charities.

One final note, a reminder that this month is membership renew time. Because of the current situation, we are extending for another 30 days. If anyone is having challenges to renew, please let us know as we can work with you. We want to retain our membership! Membership Chair is Susan Pulver, 5305 Creekside Trail, Sarasota, 34231 (941)343-2738.

Hello PAWC ladies

My name is Susan Pulver and am replacing Cecelia Massey (as if that’s possible) as Membership Chair. I’ve only been a member myself since June 2018 so I have yet to meet many of you. I hope to start doing that as soon as we are all allowed to get together again. For now, please everyone stay safe.

Just a very brief bio. My husband, Terry, and I retired and moved to Sarasota in 2013. We moved from Pittsburgh which we loved, but, like most who retire to Florida, we wanted to escape the cold and be near the beach. My first 20 work years were in Telecommunications for Mellon Bank. My second 20 were as Practice Manager for Terry’s Psychology group. We first lived in University Park for four lovely years where I was also involved with new women’s club members by running the Welcome Group. Then we found a house on a lake on Creekside Trail in Carlyle and moved next door to Palm Aire. I joined PAWC, met and became friends with Celia. When she and Paul decided to move back to the UK, she asked if I would take over the Membership Chair, and that’s how I ended up writing to you to ask for Money!

Kidding, but I do want to remind you that it is Dues Renewal time for PAWC. I have received some but it has been a slow trickle since we haven’t had luncheons where many of the dues checks used to be paid. Dues are due by May 31st. As we are all spending a lot of time at home right now, I am thinking it would be a good time to write your $40 check to PAWC. Something to do between cleaning your house, rearranging cupboards, taking walks and watching Netflix (I personally lean more toward the walks and Netflix).

Hopefully you are all planning to renew and sometime soon we can all get together again.

Please do! You can send your check for $40 made out to PAWC to me: Susan Pulver

5305 Creekside Trail

Sarasota, FL 34243

Thank you all


As a follow-up to the president's email this morning, I would like you to know:

for those of you who made the reservation for the luncheon and have already sent in your check, you can request a credit. If your check hasn't been cashed yet, I can mail it back to you or you can put it towards next year's dues. Please let me know how you would like me to handle this.

$40 annual dues are now being collected for 20/21.
Checks made payable to PAWC and mailed directly to
Susan Pulver (Membership Chairperson)
5305 Creekside Trail

***After four years of Membership Chair, Cecelia Massey is moving back to the UK and Susan Pulver has taken over as the new Membership Chair. We wish Cecelia the best and thank her for her dedicated years handling membership.
