Meet Jane Thomey
Marina District President
It is an honor to serve as your 2018-2020 Marina District President.
The theme of my administration is “One Star – Many Rays, United in Federation”. Each of the 11 clubs that comprise the Marina District is a ray that carries on the tradition of volunteerism on a local and personal level. As members of the Federation we work together to improve the lives of those less fortunate.
There are many issues today that beg our attention. One of the goals of our GFWC administration is to reclaim our role as the unified organization that can make things happen. Our primary concern is protecting those in our society who are the most vulnerable. Following the lead of GFWC we will be offered opportunities to support legislation that positively impacts women and children. This is an exciting prospect about which we will be hearing often.
The year 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment that guarantees and protects a woman’s right to vote. Many of our founding members were involved in the Suffragist Movement, an early example of unifying to promote a cause of profound importance. As we commemorate their achievements let us recognize how the star of Federation unites and empowers us and the how rays emanating from it brightly light up our lives.
Jane Thomey, Marina District President 2018-2020
