Dear LCWN Members and Community,
I hope this finds all of you healthy and safe. You have all been on my mind and I want you to know our organization may suffer a decline in the number of scholarships we have available next year, but it is temporary. Our organization will do a fundraiser this summer when social distancing is lifted, but for now our goal is to get our county through this pandemic safely.
As a healthcare worker on the frontlines, I have to thank each of you who has respected the social distancing and helped keep our community safe. I am currently serving in the drive-through COVID-19 testing station and I appreciate the sacrifices you have given in remaining home; it is difficult financially, socially, and mentally to have our lives interrupted. Some of us are serving our community by staying home and not spreading the virus, while others are serving by providing essential needs to our community. Each day when I suit up in gown, mask, gloves, and face shield to test our community, it seems surreal that we are facing this battle. There is no past experience to draw on because we have never had a pandemic like this face our community. Safety first, and then we will regroup and accomplish amazing things when we are free to care for our community again.
During this uncertain time, I hope your spirit of community service remains intact. This challenge will pass and in a few years we will share this story with new members. Please keep yourself and your family members safe.
We will not have a meeting in April in order to respect the state’s health recommendations on public meetings. Our efforts have been temporarily suspended, but we will resume with enthusiasm when this threat passes.
I have great admiration for each of you for your enthusiasm in community service and we will be stronger than ever when we resume our efforts. I will give you more updates as available, but for now stay safe and take care of yourselves and family.
Shannon Allen, LCWN President
Dear Lea County Friends,
The Lea County Women’s Network is postponing the “Irish Hoopla Fundraiser” currently set for
tomorrow, Friday 13th, due to the state of emergency declared by our Governor over the
pandemic Coronavirus COVID 19.
As a community service organization, our first loyalty is to our community members. I am
disappointed to miss the opportunity to network and raise funds for our mentor program and
scholarships, but the safety of our community is our priority. Hang on to your tickets and we will
reschedule the event when the health risk is lower for all of us.
Thank you so much to all the generous sponsors and donors making this event successful each
year. We appreciate your support! This event would not be possible without you. Helping the
ladies in our communities reach their goals and be successful in their endeavors is a very
rewarding experience for our organization, and it is because of our supporters we are able to do
this. Thank you!!
Shannon Allen
LCWN President

Dear Lea County women,
We are entering an exciting new year at Lea County Women’s Network (LCWN) and want to invite you to join our efforts in raising scholarship money for young ladies in Lea County and providing a networking opportunity for established women. An attribute of a leader is once you establish yourself, you lend a hand to those following in your footsteps. Help us empower the next generation of ladies entering the workforce in Lea County by joining our cause. There is strength in numbers!
LCWN will meet on the second Tuesday of each month at a designated location at 6 pm.  Membership meetings promote networking and offer an opportunity to explore other professions through a guest speaker at each meeting. We engage in a fundraiser in the spring to raise scholarship money for local college students, and a banquet in the fall to honor local women for their career achievements.
Yearly membership is $35.00, and all money goes toward supporting upcoming professional women in Lea County. LCWN is a non-profit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible. Please consider volunteering your time to an outstanding cause in our community. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, January 14th at the Pacific Rim Restaurant in Hobbs.
Please email to be notified of meetings and events.
Happy New Year!
Shannon Allen
