Congratulations to Korie Pelka, recipient of this year’s Louise Boggess Award. The award is our branch’s top honor and is given each year for outstanding contributions to the club. Korie’s include serving as the board’s secretary between 2018 and 2020, where she helped our meetings run flawlessly and facilitated our twice-yearly board retreats. She hosted Open Mic at the San Carlos Library, helped coordinate two workshops, volunteered at the San Mateo County Fair Literary Stage, and led a Writers Helping Writers program. She continues to host our Thursday evening Shut Up & Write group online and has generously offered to stick around to help with board retreats during the coming year. Thank you, Korie!
