April Note from President Carrie

Happy Spinter?
I have been waiting and waiting for
some good weather! I really wish I
could enjoy the colder weather.
It’s just not in my bones, and I’m
Scandinavian! So I’ve rewritten this
probably 5 times now, and I feel
like I just can’t get out what I want
to say...so, short and sweet it is.

Thank you so much for a
wonderful year. Thank you for your

support this year. I can’t wait to
see what our chapter does next
year!
Here’s hoping summer arrives
soon!!
President Carrie....signing off!

Join the fun in TWO different ways.


#1 by finding #NHWT rocks in the local parks. Taking photos of you with your finds and posting them to Facebook and Instagram with #NHWT.

C) take it home to cherish.

   #2 by painting them, hashtag them with #NHWT, and hide them (not in the grass, lawnmowers) for others to find!. You can leave hints as to where they might be found on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NewHopeWomenOfToday). 









Contact membership@newhopewt.org with any question.

Twitter This!

A Tweet may contain photos, GIFs, videos, links, and text. The screen will look different depending on what platform you are using (android, apple, personal computer, etc.)

How to Tweet.

  • Type your Tweet into the compose box at the top of your Home timeline, or click the Tweet button in the top navigation bar. 
  • You can include up to 4 photos, a GIF, or a video in your Tweet. Click the Tweet button to post the Tweet to your profile 
What is a Retweet? 
Someone else Tweet that you share publicly is known as a Retweet. This is a great way to pass along news and interesting discoveries on Twitter. You have the option to add your own comments before Retweeting. When using Twitter's Retweet icon, your Retweet or Quote Tweet will reference the Tweet you are sharing. When someone replies to your Retweet, the author of the original Tweet will not be automatically added to the conversation. If you want to include the author of the original Tweet, you will need to mention their username. In addition to sharing other’s Tweets on Twitter, you can Retweet your own Tweet. This function is particularly useful when you want to re-post one of your older Tweets because it is relevant again.

How to use hashtags.

  • A hashtag—written with a # symbol—is used to index keywords or topics. This function was created on Twitter, but has crossed over and can now be used all over the world of social medial, including YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. 
  • People use the hashtag symbol (#) before a relevant keyword or phrase in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter search. Our chapter hashtag is #NHWT 
  • Clicking or tapping on a hashtagged word in any (social media) message shows you other Tweets that include that hashtag. Hashtags can be included anywhere in a Tweet. 
How to protect your Tweets. 
When you sign up for Twitter, your Tweets are public by default. Public Tweets, are visible to anyone, whether or not they have a Twitter account. Protected Tweets, may only be visible to your Twitter followers. Should you choose to protect your Tweets, you can do so through your account settings.

  • Go to your Privacy and safety settings. 
  • In the Tweet privacy section, check the box next to Protect my Tweets. 
  • Click the Save button at the bottom of the page. You will be prompted to enter your password to confirm the change.

A March Note from President Carrie

Hello ladies!

How is it mid March already?! Not that I mind, because that means planting season is upon us! While I have been thinking of my veggie garden and all the pretty flowers I want to grow, I'm also thinking of how can we grow our chapter. How can we get that spark back to do more for our community? I can't do it alone, nor can the board. We need you! We need your ideas, big or small. It doesn't hurt to try something new! When you do, you usually end up learning new things! While I'm on the topic of new things.... Have you ever considered a board position? We need you!! We are hoping to get some new members on the board. It's really hard to run a chapter without a board! So please, please think about taking that little step outside your comfort zone...I did!! It has been a true learning experience for me, and opened my eyes towards personal development. We are having a late start (time got away from us!!) in recruiting, and we should have a new board ready to go at our APRIL meeting....so lets get our chapter growing, in membership and in personal growth. Lets finish the year out strong!

Much love, Carrie

A February Note from President Carrie

“Being kind does not have to cost a thing. Words are free, smiles are free, actions are free.”. – theodysseyonline.com This past Friday as I was getting ready for convention, I had to make a stop and change roles from adult leader to Girl Scout leader. I was meeting with my coleader to go over stuff for our Monday meeting. As I was leaving Caribou; rushed because I had other things to finish up, a woman approached me. At first, I couldn’t understand her, then she took a breath and calmed down. I learned she was driving in from Chicago with her little girl, having just left an abusive relationship and was trying to get to Bloomington, but made a wrong turn and was now almost out of gas. Did I have any money to spare? Money to spare? I don’t work, so any funny money I get I covet and horde away (yet I still don’t seem to spend it on me!). I had money on me for convention, but I couldn’t whip that out in front of her. I got nervous, my co leader had bolted to her car. It was just me…what could I do? So, I asked her to hold on a minute, and walked to my car. At least I felt a bit safer there as I was looking around, it was 10am in the Walgreens parking lot, cars and people everywhere. She followed, but never made a move towards my car. I dug a ten-dollar bill out of my small horde and walked it back to her. She almost started crying and gave me a hug…I thought she wasn’t going to let go! I started thinking about the…What if’s. What if that had been me? Would I have the courage to go up to a complete stranger and ask for help? I can barely talk to people I know in public situations. This small act of kindness made a difference to her. I wished her well and she went on her way. Our paths will probably not pass again. While my act of kindness did cost me ten-dollars, it doesn’t always have to. Remember to be kind, the world seems to be lacking this now days. Share a smile, a kind word; It needs to start somewhere, and I’m glad to be part of the kindness movement! I hope you have a “kind” day and always are courageous!

President Carrie
