Program: Christian Esquevin: retired director of the Coronado Public Library

He spoke on the challenges on libraries and the future of our library. Our library is widely used by the community and strives to offer programs for all ages. People have lost the ability to read in-depth and usually just scrim over the text. Times have changed for sure when it comes to reading a book and how libraries are used.

Federation News :

Festival of the Arts is coming up on February 27, 2019 and it is not too late to enter your art. Pearl has the entry forms if you are interested.


We are always looking for ways to get new members. We have planned a Bunco Party, date TBA. A sign-up list was passed around for volunteers to help. Pearl will finalize a date and let everyone know.

Club Reports:

Flower Show is just around the corner..get your Container Plants ready…April 13 & 14.

Pearl showed what our new Spreckle’s Park sign will look like. We chose the General Federation shield to use as our symbol.

Ways & Means: We made $230.00 profit, ($125.00 coming from a donation from one of our own members) after we paid the Shredding company $400. Concerns were raised as to why so little was made. Possible the rain played a factor in the low turn out, along with our need to increase publicity in the community. Next date TBA.
