As I sit down to write this, I wondered – does anybody read these monthly membership articles? We are hoping that they are an inspiration to some of you. If not, then we’re doing it all wrong. As they say, you can’t keep doing things the same way and expect different results.
We all need tools to work with. Think how far society has come in the last 100 years. Most people do not realize nor appreciate that the poorest American today lives far better and a more comfortable life than the richest American did 100 years ago. By any measure: life expectancy, health, medicine, comfort, devices, food, clothing, heating, even transportation, I could go on and on. However, the biggest change to improve our lives has been the development of the internet. Overnight the internet gave us untold information with the click of a finger. Now most of you use the internet to communicate with friends, family, and acquaintances, even if they are thousands of miles away or just across town. This is not costly, but does require your time.
Being a Daughter of the Nile is not costly. That depends on you and how involved you want to become. Being a Daughter of the Nile is not time consuming, that also depends on you. Being a Daughter of the Nile who supports membership is depending on you. We need your help! All Daughters of the Nile should be reminded they are on the membership committee. You have the tools to make this organization succeed! Your faith in Daughters of the Nile is what keeps us going and growing. Your camaraderie with the Daughters of the Nile women is what you should share with your relatives, friends, and people whom you know who are eligible to join us. Always, take your tools with you and wear something with a Nile emblem. Someone will ask what they symbol means. Always have a proposal with you. Do you have the 10 Questionnaire brochures? Ask your Temple’s membership chairman or Princess Recorder for these brochures.
Our future depends on you!
Our Shriners Hospitals children rely on our support.
