The Oakland Region is jumping right in to the 2018-2019 year with programming and planning. In July, veterans and new members gathered for the annual planning meeting to lay the groundwork for the rest of the year. August brought a chance for members to bring their families to Heritage Park in Farmington Hills for some fun times outdoors.
September has already shaped up to be a busy month for the Oakland Region. Several members participated in the Day of Service with Humble Design in Pontiac, taking a day away from the office to decorate a home for a previously-homeless family in Oakland County, and doing what we could to make a new house a home. We also donated $3,000 to the organization, generously sponsored by The Dobrusin Law Firm.
Continuing our efforts in supporting and networking with other regions, WBA members also attended the Tenth Annual Wine and Garden Party put on by WLAM-Wayne, enjoying a cool evening outdoors and networking with attorneys and judges.
Next on the agenda in the Oakland region is the Past Presidents reunion at Michigan By the Bottle in Royal Oak on September 13, our monthly Bar Briefs at HopCat in Royal Oak on September 24, and the Women’s Leadership Forum featuring five female Rainmakers at the Iroquois Club in Bloomfield Hills on October 11.
