The Web was established ahead of the curve. Now, we are sustaining each other while we individually — yet collectively — do what’s essential in our lives to flatten the curve.
Before we ever had an idea we’d spend our spring sheltering in place, The Web was already proving that sense of place doesn’t rest in a physical location. It’s about growing our reach, weaving our abilities and demonstrating that the community-driven, work-life blend works best when WE have a WEB we work together.
In all this uncertainty, The Web is what sticks. Our stories vary. And none come easy. But when we weave our essences with each other, we’ve created something so strong that when we return to whatever is next, we’re resistant to the storms.
Let’s be here for it. Let’s be here for each other. Let’s work our Web with the following May programming opportunities.
May 10, all day
Mother’s Day on the Porch
Here’s your reminder that Mother’s Day is here. And if you are an IRL Web Member, don’t forget the Clubhouse is available to you. Go to members.workourweb.com, and reserve the porch overlooking beautiful Washington Park for your private affair. That means you can grab to-go from Downtown Macon restaurants and enjoy the porch with your closest loved ones. OR reserve the space for some well-deserved solo time. All we ask is that you please practice safe and considerate social distancing and clean up after visit for the safety and comfort of other members who may be using the Clubhouse. To reserve, go to: members.workourweb.com.
As an extra special treat, Macon Magazine has stocked the fridge with wine as a toast to all the mamas. If you self-pour, please use a disposable cup and make a note on the wine bottle to when the cork was last opened.

NEW! Web After Dark with Amanda Pope

Member Moment with Sheila Mae Keane
Web Member Sheila Mae Keane is a full-time artist and recovering engineer who worked for the Department of Defense and “secret” programs for the U.S. Air Force. Today, she is creating art with her A Girl Like Me brand. Sheila Mae’s work is representing girls and women’s ambitions, thoughts and dreams, inspiring us to lead with our unique talents and not trying to hide or conform it to any stereotype.
