Dear Quota Friends of Region 8 USA – February 20th, 2018

This past week has been unbearable for us all near and far of Parkland, Florida.

These are the victims of the Florida school shooting: CNN

We are all asking the same question – what can we do?  At this time I have been told that there are no straight answers to this question.  We have to do what is in our hearts. Some have attended rallies, some attended vigils, and some are making donations on the Go Fund Me Page.  But the one thing I know each of us is doing – praying for the victims, injured and survivors of this mass shooting.

I’ve been in touch with Past International Vice President, Cindy Hurd because their club is right in the backyard of Parkland, being Quota of Coral Springs/Parkland.  They are all having a rough time.

I thought if as many of us as possible in our clubs could either email or mail a card or message, it would let them know that their friends of Quota Region 8 and beyond are thinking of them.  I did email a card from all of us at Quota Region 8, but individual or club cards/messages would be great too.

If you would, please ask your members to email a message to staff@quota.org to the attention of Quota of Coral Springs/Parkland or put a card in the mail and I will get everything to them at once — contact staff@quota.org for my mailing address.  Please send to me by the last day of the month so they will have everything by their meeting, the first week of March.

Thank you all so much.  We’re here for each other.  That’s why we are Quotarians!
