As a countdown to our 25th Anniversary Celebration in Colonial Williamsburg in April, EWGA Founder Nancy Oliver has agreed to write a weekly column and share her amazing collection of newsletters and press clips revealing the early years.
Over 350 women attended the kick-off of the Detroit Chapter in 1993. Yes…EWG was well on its way to becoming a national organization. Back then, it typically took one fearless woman to get the ball rolling for any new chapter – a role which we called the “Network Coordinator”. That individual for Detroit was Janina Jacobs, probably the best golfer we had encountered to date. And she was in the golf business – lucky us!
Janina, together with Carol Frassrand, Nancy Clavel and a close knit group of like men and women, amazed us all with the largest event yet to take place. I had the pleasure of attending that event, thanks to Continental Airlines who provided us with 25 complimentary tickets!!!
The Good News? The original mission is still being met – and the friendships that are formed through this organization are truly the best thing of all. Congratulations to all - Keep up the good work ladies!!!
