Sitting here this evening at my computer thinking about my up coming event on Monday. I have never spoken in front of a group of people before. I have a bit of stage fright. Never was good in front of more than a couple people. I turn bright red and start to stutter a bit.
You ask "Why did I say yes to do it then?" Well I'll tell you. I was contact by a very nice lady by the name of Lola that asked me to be a presenter at one of their groups up coming Literary Group Meetings. At first i was thinking "Oh My God! Nooo". But the more I talked to her and the more I found out about their women's club, I couldn't say no. I just had to suck it up and be embarrassed and deal with it.
The Hill and Valley Women's Club in Castro Valley, CA supports and helps so many charities in the area I had to do it. This club is celebrating 100 years this year and I didn't even know about them. I have lived in this area for well over 25 years myself and my Mother was raised just down the road from their building. Even she wasn't aware of them.
If you pass by their building or hear about them having a fund raiser, be and angel and pop on in to their public events and support the causes. wonderful group of people.
They are located at:
