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. 

EWGA Comes to the Motor City

EWGA Comes to the Motor City (Detroit)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!!!
