President’s Message As we are all beginning our new year with a fresh start, so too is the JLNVB. February kicks off a busy season with our exciting events in March, April, and May and our preparation for the next League year. The key piece of that planning is related to our incoming leadership team ~ you.   Our January Passion into Action topic was about the benefits of Junior League membership and training. As members of the JLNVB, we all strive to uphold the mission of “… promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.” Our membership in the JLNVB is a platform for us all to impact our communities by tapping the training, experience, and contacts from our Active years. The League fulfills many different needs for its members, and one of the opportunities offered to them is multiple levels of involvement through the variety of placements available, which is a primary way that its members are trained and groomed to be leaders. They learn to be leaders in their personal and professional lives, leaders in their communities, and leaders for the League, all while continuously developing their own potential and improving our communities.   You may have heard the phrase, “It is great to self-nominate.” You may ask, “What does that mean?” It means, set your leadership training goals within the League and then actively pursue them. The process of self-nomination is vital to leadership development. All of our members have valuable experience, insight, and energy that we want to tap. Our goal is to match our trained leaders to roles within the JLNVB that help us continue to have a direct impact on the community and to expand that impact. You provide us with invaluable resources to accomplish that goal through your time and your talent. When you choose to step up for a Board, Chair, or specific Committee position, you are choosing to further develop your potential as a leader. In return, the League will provide you with necessary training that not only helps you as a volunteer within the League, but also provides skills that transfer to your challenges and responsibilities at home, in the community, and in the workforce. There are many leadership positions available and we need you to fill them. Accepting a leadership role offers you an opportunity to grow in new ways and spread your wings. You can learn skills and develop experience that may aid you in all aspects of your life. So, grasp this opportunity for yourself!   Membership will soon begin our placement work for the year as Advisors/Mentors contact you for placement interviews and we hold our annual placement party at the March GMM. Placement interviews are an important tool for us as Membership works to both meet the needs of the JLNVB and to find each of you a placement that will be challenging and fulfilling. When you speak with

Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc.


your Advisor/Mentor, please talk with her about leadership roles available to you in the JLNVB, and self-nominate by letting her know which roles interest you immediately and in the long-term for your League career. If you receive the call asking you to fill a leadership position, please consider accepting and know that it will benefit you, the JLNVB, and the community at large.   Our League has many needs which must be met in order to fulfill our Mission; we cannot succeed without the hard work and dedication of JLNVB members. I ask each of you to start 2014 with a new challenge in the JLNVB and to grab the opportunity to step up to leadership and help us all continue to expand and grow!

Best Wishes,

Laura Bangor 2013-2014 President Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc.

Join the JLNVB Did you know that you can use your Junior League experience on your resume? Is there an area that you are looking to gain experience without a lot of risk? Or are you a stay at home mom now and thinking about going back to work, but need a little bit of experience? Guess what? That is what Junior League is here for! We provide you training and experience that you can then use in the community. It’s that time of year to start thinking about your placement for next year. The Membership Council has already begun preparations. Placement Party: Travel the World of Councils at the March GMM and enjoy a drink and treat from different countries as you learn about different placements within the League. Experience France with Fund Development, Mexico with Community Council, the Luck of the Irish with Membership, Spain with Administration and go island style with Jamaica for Communications Council. As you travel the world of councils, you will have the opportunity to ask current chairs about their placements and sign up for what you are interested in for next year. Be sure to vote for your favorite! Placement Process: As placement time approaches, it is important to familiarize yourself with the process. We want you to be happy in your placement and get the most out of your League experience! First, your Advisor/Mentor will send you the placement interview. Be sure to take the time to fill this out thoroughly, highlighting your skills and interests. You will have the opportunity to indicate your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices. Every effort will be made to match you up to a placement based on your preference. Second, after receiving your interview, your Placement Advisor/Mentor will call you to interview you to discuss your placement preferences. You will also be able to sign up for positions you are interested in at the World of Councils Placement Party during the March GMM. This is a great chance to ask questions! Once all the interviews have been completed, the Membership Placement Ad Hoc Committee will meet to make the final placement. It is during this meeting that all phone calls will be placed to those invited to be in a Chair/Chair Elect or Advisor/Mentor position. Once all placements have been set, the 2014-2015 placements will be announced. It is so exciting to watch women continue to grow and learn through their experiences in the Junior League. Where will Junior League take YOU? Sincerely, Hanan Mitry 2013-2014 Membership Vice President Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc.

Member of the Month & Women of Wonder

November/December 2013 JLNVB Provisional of the Month for November & December Carolyn Goodwin: Carolyn Goodwin organized the Provisional Christmas/Holiday Social and did a wonderful job. They had a “Fire and Ice� theme and she helped set up everything. She organized the invitation, location, what to bring and had everyone dress to the theme! Women of Wonder for November & December Victoria Dietz, Allison Leithner and Sherida Bonton: Victoria Dietz coordinated our participation in Giving Tuesday at the very last minute. She had us set-up and participating in this day of giving within an hour. She wrote our Facebook and Twitter posts and our email appeal to members all before 10 a.m. We raised $240 during this event. Allison Leithner and Sherida Bonton worked hard organizing our Little Hands, Big Difference event as part of the 2013 Mayflower Marathon. Children were able to help with the sorting and delivery of donated food items for the food drive. JLNVB Member of the Month for November & December Becca Nall: Becca Nall planned and coordinated two successful November phone-a-thons. She wrote the scripts, set up the pre call discussion and helped make sure everyone was prepared. Afterwards she solicited feedback and had everything available so thank you notes could be written immediately. Our 1925 Society donations received in the month of December were a total of $1,910.00 and many of those donations can be contributed to the phone-a-thons.

January 2014 JLNVB Provisional of the Month for January Christen Faatz and Kimberly Parker: Christen Faatz and Kimberly Parker did a great job planning and coordinating the Provisional Blood Drive this year.

JLNVB Member of the Month for January Robin Barnett: Robin Barnett did a great job putting together winter edition of TIDEings. She had a number of obstacles to overcome that made it very difficult. She did a great job compiling information and editing materials to put together another beautiful issue. Women of Wonder for January Nicole Parnell Provisional Mentors: Nicole Parnell worked diligently finalizing and correcting accounting items from last year and has successfully gotten our 2012-2013 books closed and our required Federal filings complete without an extension.   All of the Provisional Mentors for this year have been working hard with our Provisional class and the Provisional Team.

Community Council News With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season behind us, I must say kudos for your hard work in helping our partnering organizations make it successfully through a tough time of year. The Foodbank was filled to the brim with donations and the Boys & Girls Club was able to distribute over 100 sets of pajamas to children in our community! Several ladies also joined with Girls on the Run to support the participants donning festive gear and lots of cheer. And our Provisional Blood Drive was the most successful in recent years! As we begin the second half of the League year, there will be several opportunities to work in our community in a variety of settings. After serving over 600 direct community volunteer hours in the fall, we still have many hours remaining. I would like to remind everyone of a few events to be on the lookout for: Kids in the Kitchen!! Please help us promote this fantastic all-day event with fliers from our Communications Council and sharing and spreading the word through Facebook. We hope to have around 300 children participate this year so we need your help! Habitat for Humanity. How fortunate to have training provided to us at the January GMM! We will start assisting at build sites on several Saturdays in the near future and if there is enough interest from members, we will be able to move towards the amazing project of a “Women’s Build” next year! ForKids Room Renovation. I am very excited to announce that we are ocan again offering a total room renovation at the Haven House! Soon there will be hours available to help renovate and update a room to give back to ForKids to help their families seeking shelter and assistance. Once again, thank you for all of your dedication and hard work over the last several months. I continue to be amazed at the level of commitment our members have towards volunteerism and I am excited to get the second half of our year rolling!

JLNVB Cookbook Recipe of the Month I hope that all of you had happy holidays with your friends and family! For this issue of TIDEings, I was thinking of all the things I love about winter. One of the best parts about winter for me is that I tend to cook and bake more often when it’s chilly outside. Between the two cookbooks of our League, there are so many amazing and wonderful recipes! I decided to highlight the Overnight Coffee Cake from Tidewater on the Half Shell. This turned out to be an amazing morning treat! I’m from Colorado and I cherish the time I get to spend back at home with my parents and two younger sisters, just as I did this holiday season. Mornings are my favorite time of day. When I’m home, we all sit around with a cup of coffee and a morning treat of some sort, just talking to each other. Spending time with each other in the mornings is not just confined to my parents’ home. When we travel to Kansas to see my grandmother, we get up early and sit around the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and whatever sweet treat my grandmother picked up from the grocery store bakery. When I was younger, my grandmother would make something. Banana bread, poppy seed bread, or cinnamon rolls were her usual go to recipes. Over the last few years she doesn’t bake as much, but she will still pick something up because she loves a little sweetness with her coffee. I know that this coffee cake would be an absolute hit with my family! You need to prepare ahead of time for this coffee cake because it chills in the refrigerator overnight. First, mix the butter and sugar until is it light and fluffy, then add your eggs and sour cream. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Once you have combined the dry ingredients, add them to the batter and mix well. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan. Next, you mix the chopped pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. Once combined, spread over the top of the batter. On this last step I didn’t measure anything to an exact amount, as I always like a lot of crunch on top of coffee cakes, so I just eyeballed how much I wanted on top. Cover the coffee cake and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 30-35 minutes. Once it comes out of the oven combine powder sugar,

water and vanilla extract to make a glaze and spread across the warm coffee cake. With the glaze I ended up making more because I wanted a little extra on top of the coffee cake. This is such an easy and quick recipe, sure to put a smile on the face of anyone lucky enough to enjoy it! I definitely plan on making this for my family when I head back to Colorado in February! Hope you all give this a try, as well as the other recipes highlighted in this edition of TIDEings! Happy Cooking! Erika Massie 2013 - 2014 Cookbook Chair Junior League Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Inc.
