President's Report

Sharon Hill, NAWBO GR President

Let's see everyone at the upcoming NAWBO 2013-2014 installation meeting on Thursday, June 13.  Let's celebrate our 2012-2013 year and welcome our upcoming 2013-2014 year. 

Thanks to our 2012-2013 Membership Committee headed up by Olalah Njenga, we have grown by 17% which is HUGE for a NAWBO chapter. Let's all grab a glass (wine or water) at the installation meeting and toast our successes. 

If you haven't done so already, please register for the event. The more, the merrier.

Happy trails,

Sharon Hill, President
