A Special Thanks…
A special thanks to our 2019 Board of Directors. Although many of our Directors chose to run for reelection, others have opted to retire from the organization after years of dedication and commitment. We are especially thankful for their service to the community throughout the many years of work with the Association. Thank you to Roger Sample, Chris Racine, and Carolyn Schaeffner.
