Greetings from your SCMSA President: 
The definition of an alliance is the union between countries or organizations; a state of being joined or associated. Our alliance is just that, made up of physicians and physician spouses of all ages and nationalities that are joined together by the common bond of Medicine.

Our programs begin in September and will include internet safety and better use with our smart phones, a poetry reading written and presented by one of our own, our annual Holiday Guest Day, a fun chocolate tasting and an herb growing presentation in the spring.  The year will end with a salad luncheon in May and installation of new officers.
It will be important to check the yearbook for dates, times, locations and other details.  Meetings will be held on different days and times this year.  During some meetings a light lunch will be provided.   Watch our Monday Memos for special events with Strictly Social, Book Club, Wine Club and our new young parent’s group.  Additionally, for our younger members with families, an Easter egg hunt will be held in April.  I have hopes for additional interest groups including a widow’s group and games groups.
Our community project will provide free flu shots and bike helmets for kids at the Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk, September 28-29.  This will be made possible in large part through the TMA Foundation Grants program and the TMA/TMAA supported Hard Hats for Little Heads program. Consider joining us monthly for “Walk With A Doc” sponsored by the Smith County Medical Society.  I also invite you to learn more about our very own Book Fair and volunteer if time permits.

My personal goal is to see more members involved, whether just a check book member, on a committee or a come and visit member, I want to meet all of you. If you are new, you will have a new family. If you are ready to come back, we welcome you.  Our organization is for you. 

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving you this year.
Linda Alexander
2018 – 2019 SCMSA President
