We would like to send a big thank you to Sandy Swanson for serving as our President for the past two years! Sandy has done a terrific job. She has spent many hours, outside of meetings, organizing, planning, and making sure that things ran smoothly. A BIG thank you for all you have done for our club and the community.
We would also like to thank the rest of our outgoing Board members: Sharon, Jessica Ann, and Theresa. They have done their positions for two years as well. From attending Board meetings and doing your specific duties, you have all shone. For that we really appreciate the time and effort that you have all put in. An added thank you to Jessica Ann for providing a delicious banquet for us all.
Last, but not least, we would like to thank the Chair Ladies for all the work that they have done this year and last. It takes many people working in front and behind the scenes to make sure all the important work and projects are done. Thank you to you ALL!
Although our meetings and events have ended until next September, we hope to have a get together this summer. Make sure to check your Email as there will most likely be a gathering sometime in July. See you then!
